The Genus Pochazia Amyot and Serville (Hemiptera:Ricaniidae) from Korea, with a Newly Recorded Species
M.A. Rahman, Y.J. Kwon, S.J. Suh, Y.N. Youn and S.H. Jo

Abstract:
Two species of the genus Pochazia, P. albomaculata and P. shantungensis, are redescribed and illustrated from Korea. Among them, the exotic species P. shantungensis, assumed to be invaded from China recently, is known for the first time in Korea. A sudden outbreak of the latter is observed in the western part of Korean peninsula which is injurious to various fruit plants, many other trees and wild herbs. Hitherto unknown male genitalic characters of the two species are given and keys to genera of the Ricaniidae and species of Pochazia from Korea are provided.

S. M. Hemayet Jahan:
This paper is really informative for Korea because this species was suddenly introduced from China but identification in species level was confused and type material was female. However, this paper nodoubtly will be the base of applied research in Korea.

Thanks to authors for identifying this species with the structure of male genitalia that will be helpful for comparision with other congeners in Ricaniidae.
