Abstract

Three species of the genus Draconarius are recognized from Korea and all are described and illustrated. Coelotes kayasanensis Paik 1972 is transferred to Draconarius (D. kayasanensis new combination) based on the presence of a patellar apophysis, the hooked dorsal apophysis of the conductor in the male palp, the position of the spermathecal head, and the shape of the broadly rectangular genital opening of the female situated posteriorly near the epigastric furrow. The male of D. coreanus (Paik & Yaginuma 1969) and the female of D. kayasanensis are described for the first time. A neotype of D. coreanus is designated in the present study because of the loss of the holotype, limited range of the species, and the small population size. Draconarius hallaensis new species is described and is distinguished by its small size (less than 8 mm in total body length), large rounded retrolateral tibial apophysis, and median apophysis that has a distally divided thumb-shaped inner part.
