Abstract: One of the largest genera of subfamily Ophioninae, Ophion, has been reported 144 species in the World. Nevertheless, recorded members of genus Ophion are 40 species in the Eastern Palaearctic region, 8 in South Korea (O. ainoicus, O. choaspese, O. flavopictus, O. fuscomaculatus, O. luteus luteus, O. obscuratus obscuratus, O. okunii, O. takaozanus). In this paper, a taxonomic list of genus Ophion from South Korea is provided for the first time. Two newly recorded species, Ophion hokkaidonis Uchida and Ophion nikkonis Uchida, are reported from South Korea. A key to these South Korean species, diagnoses of the two newly recorded species and digital images are provided.
