 Abstract
The genus Metopius is a relatively large ichneumonids group that includes 145 species worldwide. In this genus, 41 species have been reported from the Eastern Palaearctic region, while eight species have been reported from Korea. We reviewed Korean species of the genus Metopius and confirmed 13 species. We also report five species, Metopius (Ceratopius) maruyamensis Uchida, 1930, Metopius (Ceratopius) scrobiculatus Hartig, 1838, Metopius (Peltastes) fossulatus Uchida, 1933, Metopius (Peltastes) pinatorius , 1846 and Metopius (Peltastes) sapporensis Uchida, 1930, which were recorded for the first time from Korea. A key to Korean species of the genus Metopius, redescriptions of newly recorded species and digital images of Korean Metopius are also provided.
