Abstract
The genus Eupithecia Curtis is the largest taxon in Lepidoptera (more than 1,500 species worldwide) and the adults of the genus are characterized by small in size, cryptically colored grayish and brownish forewing, and indistinct basal, ante- and postmedial transverse lines mostly with a definite discal spot on the forewing. Forty-four species have been reported so far in Korea. Herein, we present the first report on seven species of Eupithecia : Eupithecia rufescens Butler (1878) , Eupithecia costiconvexa Inoue (1979) , Eupithecia daemionata Dietze (1904) , Eupithecia persuastrix Mironov (1990) , Eupithecia actaeata Walderdorff (1869) , Eupithecia suboxydata Staudinger (1897) and Eupithecia costimacularia Leech (1897) . Diagnosis, descriptions and figures of the available species are provided.

INTRODUCTION
The genus Eupithecia Curtis is one of the most species-rich taxa of Lepidoptera, comprised of more than 1,500 species worldwide ( Scoble, 1999 ). The adults of Eupithecia are relatively small in size (wingspan ranges from 12 to 35 mm), have cryptically colored grayish and brownish forewing with regularly fasciated and a definite discal spot and the more weakly fasciated hindwing ( Holloway, 1997 ; Mironov, 2003 ). Most specimens of the species can rarely be identified by external appearance, requiring dissection of the genitalia for correct identification ( Mironov, 2003 ). The male genitalia of the genus usually can be characterized as membranous, tapering uncus with one or two tips, slender membranous valva often with ventral process, labidies with anterior arms apically digitiform, juxta broadest transversely with two narrow apical lobes, and aedeagus with one or more variously shaped cornuti ( Mironov, 2003 ). The female genitalia usually can be characterized by the membranous papillae anales, ductus bursae with a well-developed colliculum, and corpus bursae covered with numerous signa and different positions of the ductus seminalis ( Mironov, 2003 ).
In Korea, a total of 44 species of Eupithecia are recorded ( Oh, 1992 , 1993 ; Shin, 1996 ; Choi and Kim, 2013 ; Choi, 2014 ). The purpose of the present study was to report seven new records of the genus. Examination of adults, including the male and female genitalia, is in reference to Scoble (1992) .

Diagnosis. This species can be characterized by the long projected labial palpi, the pale rusty brown ground color of the fore and hindwings, the dark brownish double undulating postmedial lines and relatively large brownish discal dot on the forewing, and the thick blackish medial lines and postmedial line of the hindwing. This species is similar to Eupithecia abietaria , but can be distinguished by the broad central fascia and double undulating postmedial lines of the forewing. The male genitalia can be diagnosed by the long, slender uncus, the large, cone-shaped papillae, the thick digitate anterior arm of the labides, the medially projected saccus, the long, slender valva with long, sclerotized costa, and the minute spinular cornuti of the vesica. The male genitalia of Eupithecia rufescens are similar to those of E. abietaria , but can be distinguished by the minute cornuti of the vesica. The female genitalia can be diagnosed by the large, semi-circular antrum, the short ductus bursae with a colliculum, and the large ovate corpus bursae bearing a posterior patch of large spicules and an anterior patch of small spicules. The female genitalia of Eupithecia rufescens are similar to those of E. abietaria , but can be distinguished by the two closely located patches of spicules of corpus bursae.
