- Previously, a total of seven species belonging to tribe Platysomatini Bickhardt, 1914 have been recorded from Korea. In this study, a new species, Platylister (Platylister) yongamensis sp. nov., is described. Also, three species are newly reported: Kanaarister celatus (Lewis, 1884), Niposoma vagans (Lewis, 1884), and Platysoma (Platysoma) takehikoi, Ôhara, 1986. We present a key to species and genera of Korean Platysomatini, diagnoses for genera, descriptions, and photographs for newly reported species.
