The male of Agroeca bonghwaensis (Seo, 2011), Korean endemic species, of Liocranidae firstly described with measurements and morphological illustrations from Korea. The male of A. bonghwaensis is similar to A. brunnea (Blackwall, 1833) in palpal organ, but can be easily distinguished by bird-shaped retrolateral tibial apophysis with blunt tip and basally broad median apophysis with broad hook-shaped tip.
