Abstract

The Korean species of Tipula ( Vestiplex ) Bezzi, 1924 crane flies are taxonomically revised. Five species are recognized. Tipula ( V. ) coquillettiana Alexander, 1924, T. ( V. ) kuwayamai Alexander, 1921, T. ( V. ) tchukchi Alexander, 1934, and T. ( V. ) verecunda Alexander, 1924 are newly recorded from the Korean Peninsula, and T. ( V. ) serricauda Alexander, 1914 was previously recorded. The larva of T. ( V. ) serricauda is described and illustrated, and the larvae of the subgenus T. ( Vestiplex ) are divided into four groups based on spiracular lobe morphology. An identification key, redescriptions, and illustrations of Korean T. ( Vestiplex ) adults and grouping of known larvae are presented.
