 Abstract
Two species of the genus Palorus Mulsant of Palorini (Tenebrionidae) are reported for the first time from Korea, P. ratzeburgii (Wissman, 1848) and P. subdepressus (Wollaston, 1864). These species are economically importance as stored product insect pests in the tropical and subtropical countries, and occur in low densities in the rice mills of southern Korea. Adult morphology, taxonomic diagnosis, illustrations of diagnostic characteristics of these species, and a taxonomic key to the 6 species related to plant quarantine inspections in Korea are provided.
