  • Eight species of Chironomidae (Diptera) which are new to Korea are described with illustrations. They are extremely rare species in Korea, as only one or two specimens have been collected since 1977 throughout the country. Microchironomus tener, Stictochironomus akizukii and Paratendipes nubilus belong to subfamily Chironominae, and the other five species: Diplocladius cultriger, Limnophyes minimus, Metriocnemus fulvofasciatus and Parametriocnemus stylatus belong to subfamily Orthocladiinae.

  • Out of the 12,100 slide-mounted specimens of Chironomidae collected throughout Korea from February 1977 to March 2016, 271 (2.2%) were from the genus Ablabesmyia (Diptera, Chironomidae, Tanypodinae). These 271 specimens were re-examined and eight species were identified, with three of these species shown to be new to science (A. hanea n. sp., A. microlongistyla n. sp., and A. paralongistyla n. sp.). It was discovered that A. monilis reported in 1981 and A. longistyla reported in 2009 had been misidentified, and corrected as A. prorasha in the present study. Among the eight species found from Korea, A. prorasha was predominant (37.8%), followed by A. longistyla (28.9%), and A. monilis (20.4%). A key of the eight species of Ablabesmyia found in Korea is provided.

  • In the study of population dynamics of non-biting midges (Diptera: Chironomidae) emerging from reclaimed rice fields in Seosan, Chungchongnam-do, Korea, a new species, Tanytarsus seosanensis sp. nov. and an unrecorded species from Korea, Chironomus javonus (Kieffer) were found. T.seosonensis was the third dominant species among the non-biting midges found in the reclaimed rice fields, whereas C.javanus was a rare species. They are fully described with illustrations.

  • Adult chironomid collections were carried out near Namdae stream located at Jeollabuk-do, Muju-gun, Mujueup, Dangsan-ri in 2008 and 2009. Among 21 species of the tribe Tanytarsini identified from Muju collections, six new species (Cladotanytarsus neovanderwulpi, Paratanytarsus paramikesecumdus, Rheotanytarsus parapentapodus, Rheotanytarsus sungili, Tanytarsus neotamaoctavus, and Tanytarsus synyunosecundus) and four previously unrecorded species (Cladotanytarsus vanderwulpi, Paratanytarsus inopertus, Tanytarsus tamagotoi, and Tanytarsus uresiacutus) were confirmed. They are fully described with illustrations. As a result of this report, the Korean fauna of Tanytarsini consists of 37 species, 6 genera. In total, 128 species, 52 genera, 5 subfamilies of the family Chironomidae are listed in Korea.

  • Adults of Chironomidae were collected at Soyang river sites in Chuncheon-si, Gangwon-do on 1 August and 14 September in 2008, and 1 May in 2009. A total of 794 adults were collected, consisting of 52 species, 23 genera, 4 subfamilies. Among them, 7 species were recorded in Korea for the first time, and 9 species were new to science. These 7 previously unrecorded and 9 new species are described with illustrations. Eight species still have not been identified. The subfamily Prodiamesinae and four genera: Demicryptochironomus, Parakiefferiella, Psectrocladius and Monodiamesa are the first record in Korea. Tanytarsus seohyoni n. sp. was the most dominant species, consisting of 24.6% of the total samples.
