- Until now, only one species, Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton, of the genus Phyllocnistis belonging to the family Gracillariidae is listed in Korea, without available information on its identification and morphology, which is now a very serious and important insect pest species in southern area. This study was carried out to provide the illustration with genital structure and DNA barcode data for rapid monitoring, which has not been presented in this country to date.
