Abstract

Two new species, Colon (Myloechus) koreanus new species (type locality—Mt. Odaesan, Pyeongchang-gun, Gangwon Prov., Korea) and C. (M.) shini new species (type locality—Mt. Odaesan, Pyeongchang-gun, Gangwon Prov., Korea), of the genus Colon Herbst are described from Korea and Japan. Types and paratypes of the new species are designated. The subfamily Coloninae and the genus Colon are reported for the first time in Korea. Colon (Myloechus) shini is the eighth species recorded from Japan. A key to the species of Colon in Korea and Japan, and illustrations of diagnostic features of the two new species are presented.
