In North Korea, the first report of the family Tortricidae, comprising 34 species, was made in 1969. It includes three species of the genus
G. inopinata, G. molesta
). Among them,
is now placed under the genus
. In the present study, a total of four species of the genus
are recognized from North Korea, based on material deposited in the Hungarian Natural History Museum, Hungary. Of them,
(Busck), is reported for the first time from North Korea. In the present study,

was established by Treitschke in 1829 based on
[Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775, and is comprised of more than 125 described species worldwide (Brown, 2005). It has been known as a serious agricultural pests, especially
(Busck), which attacks apples and allied plants as an internal and external feeders (Bae and Park, 1997). In Korea, Bae and Park (1997) reviewed seven species of
from the southern part of the Korean peninsula. However, it has been very poorly studied in North Korea to date.
In North Korea, the first report of the family Tortricidae, comprising 34 species, was made by Zhu (1969). It includes three species of the genus
G. inopinata, G. molesta
). Among them,
is now placed under the genus
by Brown (2005).
Later, Park and Byun (1991) reported 26 species of the family Tortricidae from North Korea, with the material deposited in the Hungarian Natural History Museum, Budapest, Hungary (HNHM). However, there was no additional species for the genus in their report.
Jaros et al. (1992) reported 28 new records of Tortricidae from Korea, based on the material Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague, Czech Republic (CAS). Byun et al. (1998) enumerated 350 species of Korean Tortricidae, citing 63 species of Tortricinae and 40 species of Olethreutinae which had been identified in North Korea. Later Razowski (1999) provided a list of Korean Tortricidae with additional data, indicating 176 species of the Tortricidae from North Korea, based on previous reports and the specimens at Polish Academy of Sciences, Krakow, Poland (PAS). Despite these studies, only one species,
, was added by Razowski (1999). Also, several reports on North Korean Olethreutinae were presented recently, based on the material of HNHM (Byun, 2009, 2011a, 2011b, 2011c). But there has been no further study on the tribe Grapholitini after Razowski (1999). Consequently, three species of the genus were known from North Korea, but there are no previous reports with detailed information on this matter.
(Heinrich) was listed in North Korea by Zhu (1969), which might be cited after Danilevsky and Kuznetsov (1968), we could not find this material during the course of this study. The aim of the present study is to review the genus
of North Korea, based on the material deposited in HNHM, in order to update our knowledge of the fauna of Tortricinae of North Korea using recent data. All the examined material for each species is enumerated, with localities and available information, including distributional ranges and host plants.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
Material examined in this study was based on the collection in the HNHM. Genitalia of the species were mounted in Euparal media. Images were captured using an iCM 3.0 IMT i-Solution Inc. digital camera (Vancouver, Canada) attached to a Nikon MMZ 800 microscope (Yokohama, Japan). The color standard for the description of adults was based on the Methuen Handbook of Colour (Kornerup and Wanscher, 1978). Abbreviation used in this study is as follows: TL, type locality; GS, genitalia slide number.

A). Wingspan 11-12 mm. The species differs from others by the presence of four whitish parallel lines arising from the dorso-middle part of the forewing. It is one of the common species which is easily collected on
spp. from May to September in Korea. Larvae bore into the stem and makes galls (Bae and Park, 1997). Moths usually fly at day time.
Female genitalia (Fig. 2C):
Papillae anales narrow with numerous short hairs. Sterigma subquadrate in shape. Ostium bursae broad, rounded at entrance, funnel-like in outline. Ductus bursae as long as half of corpus bursae, wide in diameter, well sclerotized from entrance to middle, then slightly widened towards corpus bursae. Corous bursae large, ovate, somewhat long, having two different signa: one with wide tongue-like and the other nail-shaped. Ductus seminalis ovate, balloon-shaped with a slightly narrow entrance, somewhat wider in diameter than ductus bursae, originating from before the entrance of corpus bursae.

It has two generations per year and hibernates as larva within cocoon in soil or between seeds. Generally one individual of larva is able to eat seven or eight immature seeds. Larvae attack
L. seriously until early August (Liu, 1983). This species was listed by Razowski (1999) without enough information, including only one locality as Thesong (a lake near the district of Kanso). In this study, we provide more detail information for the species.

B). Wingspan 11-14 mm. This species is very similar to
, but it can be distinguished by the following characters: male with hindwing rather convex at tornal area; slightly arched costa of valve in male genitalia; VII sternite with convex caudal margin (Bae and Park, 1997).
Male genitalia (Fig. 2A):
Uncus atrophied, somewhat narrowed terminally. Valva narrow, deeply concave at lower middle area, with costa gently curved downwards; cucullus soatulate, rather broad and rounded terminally, covering with numerous stout spines along lower margnal area; sacculus narrow, a bit thick bearing long hairs ventrally, with a wide semi-circle cavity basally. Aedeagus wide basally, slightly curved, narrowed terminally; cornuti with a series of short filiform thorns.

B. (Rosaceae) (Liu, 1983; Liu and Li, 2002).
It has two generations per year in China, and hibernates as matured larva between branches or stems. Adults emerge in late May to late June. Female adults lay eggs singly on each fruit. Eggs hatch in about 6 days. Newly hatched larvae feed into fruit, and thereby the injured area turns reddish brown. Larvae are fully grown after about 18 days. Mature larvae come out from fruit to find any gap to pupate by making a cocoon. Pupae emerge after 8-10 days. Moths appear from mid-July to mid-August. Larvae of second generation mature until late September and begin to hibernate (Liu, 1983; Liu and Li, 2002). During the course of the pre-

C). Wingspan 12-14 mm. This species is one of the cosmopolitan species. It is quite similar externally, but can be distinguished by the hindwing with grayish pale-yellowish brown patch and straight costa of valva in male genitalia.
Male genitalia (Fig. 2B):
Uncus atrophied, somewhat pointed and slightly emarginated terminally. Valva narrow, strongly concaved at medio-ventral area, with costa nearly straight; cucullus spatulate, rather broad and rounded terminally, having stout spines along lower and lateral margin; sacculus narrow, weakly sclerotized. Aedeagus broader basally, slightly curved at middle, narrowed beyond middle; cornuti consisting of a series of short spines.
Female genitalia (Fig. 2D):
Papillae anales broad, broder posteriorly. Apophyses anetriores as long as half of apophyses posteriors. Stergma large, strongly sclerotized, with two shortly projections post-laterally, slightly emarginated before these projections. Ostium bursae small, quadrate in outline. Ductus bursae very short, well sclerotized inside. Ductus seminalis large, ovate, rather broad at entrance, originated from the entrance of corpus bursae. Corpus bursae large, pear shaped, with two small thorn like signa of differing size.

The species completes three or four generations a year in pear farms in China and overwinters as matured larva within a grayish white cocoon at base of trunks, fruit boxes, stones, and between bark. Female adults lay eggs beneath new leaves. Hatched larvae bore into new branches. Larvae of the second generation appear in July to August. In severe infestations, fruits may be surrounded by blackish frass, which is a specific symptom distinguished from other species (Liu, 1983; Liu and Li, 2002).
Grapholita molesta(Busck) (Figs. 1C,2B, D)
is one of the complex groups of Tortricidae. It has been well investigated in the southern part of the Korean peninsula (Bae and Park, 1997). However, it has been poorly studied to date in North Korea. Recently the author examined the materials of North Korea deposited in HNHM and reviewed the genus using all available specimens for the genus. Also, a little known species,
, and a newly recorded species,
, are documented in North Korea, including their taxonomic information, distributional ranges, and host plants with available data. In this study, four species were recognized from North Korea. However,
is still doubtful. We could not find any specimen for the species during the course of the present study. It needs further study in the future, especially in terms of its distributional range in the northern part of the Korean peninsula.
The first author thanks Drs. L. Ronkay and A. Kun, Department of Zoology, Hungarian Natural History Museum (HNHM), Budapest, Hungary, for allowing the examination of the North Korean specimens. This study was carried out with the support of Forest Practice Research Center, Korea Forest Research Institute (Project No. SC0400-2012-01) and Basic Science Research Program through the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF), funded by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (2012-0002618).
