  • The family Trogossitidae Latreille occurs worldwide, including some Pacific islands. The family contains about 50 genera and 600 described species, and the group was recently classified by Kolibáč into three subfamilies, Lophocaterinae, Peltinae and Trogossitinae. Among the lophocaterine genera, a genus Ancyrona Reitter includes 62 species in most parts of the world except the Nearctic region, and is divided into five informal species groups by Kolibáč. In this study, the genus Ancyrona and its a single species, A. diversa (Pic), is newly reported in the Korean fauna. A diagnosis, habitus photographs, and illustrations of female diagnostic characters are provided, with a key to Palaearctic species of the genus Ancyrona.
