  • Zubovskya morii (Bey-Bienko, 1931) was rediscovered from its type locality, Mount Baekdusan, from materials collected by Bulgarian zoological expeditions to North Korea in the 1970s. This grasshopper species is endemic to North Korea and for the past 85 years was known only from a single holotype male. In the present study we describe the female Z. morii for the first time. A revised checklist of Orthoptera at Mount Baekdusan (also known as Changbaishan in China) is also provided. A new synonymy, Zubovskya longifurcula (Jin et al., 2011), syn. nov. for Zubovskya koreana Mistshenko, 1952 is proposed here.

  • The genus Caconemobius comprises marine apterous crickets. In recent years, two species have been confirmed in Korea: Caconemobius sazanami (Furukawa, 1970) and Caconemobius takarai ($\hat{O}$shiro, 1990). A key to species, descriptions, distribution data, photographs, and figures are presented to compare the two crickets.

  • A taxonomic review of the genus Atractomorpha Saussure in Korea is presented. Two species are identified, Atractomorpha lata (Motschulsky, 1866) and a new record A. sinensis Bolivar, 1905 which is reported from the far southern islands in Korea, Gageo-do and Jeju-do. A key, descriptions, habitus photographs of adults, and distributional information are provided.

  • The burrowing-cricket genus Velarifictorus Randell, 1964 is reviewed in Korea, comparing with morphologically resembled genus Lepidogryllus Otte and Alexander, 1983 for the first time. First, Velarifictorus aspersus borealis Gorochov, 1985 is confirmed from only restricted area of southern regions in Gyeongsangnam-do and Jeollanam-do. Second, Velarifictorus micado (Saussure, 1877) is confirmed from nearly all around the Korean peninsula including North Korea. Third, the previously not recorded Velarifictorus ornatus (Shiraki, 1911) is newly recognized from South Korea. Relating to the genus Velarifictorus, the resembled genus Lepidogryllus Otte and Alexander, 1983 and its species Lepidogryllus siamensis (Chopard, 1961) com. & stat. nov. is studied and compared with Velarifictorus members. A key, descriptions, tables, photographs, figures, oscillograms and spectrograms of calling sounds are provided to aid identification between the four similar species.

  • The field-cricket $Turanogryllus$ $eous$ Bey-Bienko, 1956 and its genus $Turanogryllus$ Tarbinsky, 1940 were recorded for the first time from Chungcheongbuk-do province in Korea to carry out the project 'The sound guides to Korean animals.' Depending on the discovery of the cricket, its distributional ranges are more widened towards East Asia to the Korean peninsula from China mainland, the $Turanogryllus$ was 10th to known Gryllinae genera in Korea. Description, photos of habitus, figure of male genitalia, oscillogram and spectrogram for the calling sound are provided for aid identification. Voucher specimens are deposited in the collection of National Institute of Biological Resources, Incheon, Korea.
