The Phycitinae are one of the largest subfamilies of the family Pyralidae in Lepidoptera, comprising approximately 5,000 species in the world (Li and Ren, 2009). Leech and South (1901) first reported 3 species of Phycitini from the Korean Peninsula; Okamoto (1924), Shibuya (1927), Park and Lee (1958), Park (1976, 1983, 1993), Byun et al. (1997), Choi et al. (1998, 1999), Paek et al. (1999, 2002), Paek and Bae (1999, 2000, 2001a, 2001b), and Byun and Lee (2008), respectively, made contributions to the faunal study of Korean Phycitinae. Currently, Bae et al. (2008) reviewed the subfamily with 79 known species from South Korea. In the present study, the authors add two more Phycitinae species for the fauna of Korea:
Order Lepidoptera Linnaeus, 1758
Family Pyralidae Latreille, 1809
Subfamily Phycitinae Ragonot, 1885
