Abstract: Four feather mites, Alloptes (Apodalloptes) orthogramme Gaud and Mouchet, 1957, Alloptes (Conuralloptes) limosae Dubinin, 1951, Alloptes (C.) procerus Gaud, 1972 and Alloptes (Sternalloptes) fauri Gaud, 1957 are reported for the first time in South Korea. These specimens were collected from four charadriiform bird species: Actitis hypoleucos, Larus crassirostris, Limosa limosa, and Numenius phaeopus. The family Alloptidae Gaud, 1957 and a genus Alloptes Canestrini, 1879 are newly added to the invertebrate fauna of South Korea as well. Here, we provide the morphological description and illustrations based on the present specimens. Additionally, partial sequences of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) were newly-generated for using as DNA barcodes.
