Abstract

A new species, Scopura jiri sp. n., in the wingless stonefly family Scopuridae is described from Korea with figures of key characters. The male adult of S. jiri can be distinguished from other congeners by the elongated lateral projections of the epiproct, by the absence of a basal projection of the cerci, and by the presence of a median sclerite on the penis. The nymph can be distinguished by the presence of a pair of lateral swellings and a median swelling on the epiproct. Distributional and taxonomic remarks are provided.
