Abstract: Three species of Acrolepiopsis: A. issikiella (Moriuti, 1961), A. japonica Gaedike, 1982, and A. postomacula (Matsumura, 1931), are recorded from Korea for the first time. Acrolepiopsis issikiella is characterized by having the white costal strigulae and a large dorsal patch on the forewing. Acrolepidopsis japonica is the smallest congener in Korea. Acrolepiopsis postomacula is the only Korean species of Acrolepiinae associated with Hosta. Distributions and larval biology of the three species are summarized. Two species, A. issikiella and A. japonica, are potential pest species of yam-cultivating farms in Korea. Superficial and genital features of the species, if available, are illustrated.
