Abstract: The specimens of caddisflies previously recorded as Sortosa distincta (Walker, 1852), Rhyacophila uchidai Kobayashi, 1989, Rhyacophila jirisana Kobayashi, 1989, Crunobiodes koriaensis Kobayashi, 1989, and Ganonema odaenum Kobayashi, 1989 from South Korea were reexamined. Rhyacophila uchidai and R. jirisana are newly synonymized with R. retracta Martynov, 1914 and R. vicina Botosaneanu, 1970, respectively. We reconfirm two synonyms, C. koriaensis with Lepidostoma sinuatum (Martynov, 1935) and G. odaenum with Psilotreta locumtenens Botosaneanu, 1970, and a misidentification of Dolophilodes affinis Levanidova and Arefina, 1996 as S. distincta. Some specimens recorded as G. odaenum are identified as Psilotreta falcula Botosaneanu, 1970.
