The family Brachyceridae is reported for the first time in Korea and is represented by Desmodophorus hebes (Fabricius, 1781) . A revised description, morphological photographs of adults, illustrations of genitalia, a key to the families of Korean Curculionoidea, and a key to the East Asian species of Desmidophorus are provided. 초 록: 한국산 미기록과인 턱바구미과(Brachyceridae)(신칭)에 속한 Desmodophorus hebes (Fabricius) (무궁화턱바구미)(신칭)를 국내에서 처음 으로 분류학적으로 검토하였다. 이 종에 대한 재기재문, 성충사진, 진단형질 그림, 동아시아지역에 분포하는

It has apomorphic state of characters as precoxal part of the prothorax shorter than the postcoxal one, connate elytra, secondarily thickened snout and true 8th sternite in male and plesiomorphic state of character as reduced tegmen to the group of Dryophthoridae, Curculionidae, Scolytidae, and Platypodidae (Legalov, 2006). Most of them are flightless because the elytra are grown together along the suture and the hind wings are vestigial. The larva live in the soil and feed on the roots of the host plant, and the adults feed on the leaves. The subfamily Desmidophorinae which comprises genus Desmidophorus, was first proposed by Morimoto (1962) in the family Brentidae, based principally on the Brentid-Apionid type aedeagus and undeveloped proventriculus. Recently it was transferred to the subfamily Ocladiinae in the family Brachyceridae as a tribe based on the primitive features in the aedeagus, proventriculus and the larvae characters as antennal sensorium with conical, ogival or semiellipsoidal, not or hardly longer than wide, with collar-like structure at base, clypeus with two setae and a sensillum on each side and legs absent (Alonso-Zarazaga
