Two species, Daulia afralis Walker and Herpetogramma cynaralis Walker, belonging to the family Crambidae, Lepdidoptera, are reported for the first time from Korea, based on the materials collected from Jeju Islands located in the southern part of the Korean peninsula. Both male and female genitalia were dissected and examined. Also, the photos of the external morphology, including the wing patterns, and genitalic characteristics of the two species are taken and redescribed briefly, including distributional ranges and available information. Taxonomic information and synonymies for the species were given and discussed.

제주지역을 중심으로 실시한 나방류 조사결과 포충나방과의 2종(Daulia afralis Walker, Herpetogramma cynaralis Walker)이 우리나라에서는 처음으로 발견되었기에 보고한다. 본 연구에서는 이들 종의 외부형태 및 암수생식기의 특징을 검경하여 도해하고 간략히 재기재하였다. 또한 각 종별로 분류학적 정보 및 국내외 분포범위에 대하여 정리하여 보고한다.
