Torymus koreanus (Hymenoptera: Torymidae) was reared from galls of Dryocosmus kuriphilus (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae) for the first time in Japan. We here report morphological features and partial mtDNA sequencing data of T. koreanus. Torymus koreanus has several common characteristics with species of the cyaneus group defined by Zavada (2003). According to the key to species groups defined by Graham and Gijswijt (1998), it does not belong to any species group because of the entire posterior margin of metasomal tergum five.
