Original Paper


The cerambycid genus Miaenia Pascoe (Coleoptera: Cerambycoidea) of South Korea is taxonomically reviewed. Two species, Miaenia fasciata fasciata (Matsushita) and Miaenia maritima Tsherepanov have been recorded. In this paper, M. tonsa (Bates) is added to the Korean cerambycid fauna for the first time. A key to Korean Miaenia species, re-description and diagnostic illustrations, including male genitalia for each species, are provided.


Acanthocinini Cerambycidae Miaenia New species South Korea Taxonomy 



We sincerely thank Dr. Junsuke Yamasako (Tokyo University, Japan) for lending the Japanese Miaenia specimens and Mr. Seunghyun Lee (Seoul National University, South Korea) for providing Korean specimens of M. fasciata fasciata and M. maritima. This study was supported by the Korea National Arboretum (Project No. KNA1-2-28, 17-3) and carried out with the support of Forest Science and Technology Project (Project No. S111616L050100) provided by Korea Forest Service.
