Abstract

Two new rove beetle species of the genus Baeocera Erichson were described from Korea by examining specimens of the subfamily Scaphidiinae. Baeocera choi sp. nov. is similar in appearance to B. caliginosa Löbl, 1984, but differs in coloration of the dorsum and in structure of the parameres. Baeocera koreana sp. nov. is similar in appearance to B. takizawai Löbl, 1984, but differs in body size and punctated elytra. Baeocera freyi Löbl, 1966, also was found in the collection specimens. A taxonomic key is proposed to separate these 3 species, and diagnostic characters accompanied by illustrations are included.
