Abstract: An ennomine species, Paradarisa chloauges Prout, 1927 is newly recorded from Korea. Adults were collected at the south aspect of Mt. Hallasan, Jejudo. Paradarisa chloauges can be distinguished by grayish or dark greenish foreand hindwings, blackish basal, ante- and postmedial lines with a blackish discal dot on the forewing and transverse antemedial line, as well as a strongly dentate postmedial line and a thick, dark brownish tinged subterminal line on the hindwing. Paradarisa chloauges is externally very similar to P. consonaria, but can be distinguished by the larger wingspan and flying time. The male genitalia of P. chloauges are similar to those of P. consonaria, but can be distinguished by the long sacculus and two harpe processes on the valva and the large spinular cornuti on the vesical. The female genitalia of P. chloauges are similar to those of P. consonaria, but can be distinguished by the large bagshaped corpus bursae. To date, two species of the genus Paradarisa have been recorded in Korea.
