Four species (Diglochis sylvicola (Walker), Lariophagus obtusus Kamijo, Mokrzeckia lazoensis Tselikh, Paracarotomus cephalotes Ashmead) of the Pteromalinae and four species (Lamprotatus duplicatus (Kamijo), L. hikosanus (Kamijo), Stictomischus momoii Kamijo, S. scaposus Thomson) of the Miscogastrinae are recorded for the first time for the fauna of South Korea. Among them, Diglochis $F{\ddot{o}}rster$, Paracarotomus Ashmead, and Stictomischus Thomson are newly recorded from South Korea. Additionally, a key to the South Korean genera of Pteromalinae and Miscogastrinae and photos of diagnostic characteristics are provided.
