Abstract

Seven species of Embolemidae are recognized in Japan. They belong to two genera: Embolemus Westwood 1833 and Tro-gloembolemus Olmi, Mita et Guglielmino, gen. nov. (type species T. fujiei Olmi, Mita et Guglielmino, sp. nov.) Embole-mus honshuensis Olmi, Mita et Guglielmino, sp. nov. (Japan, Honshu) and Trogloembolemus fujiei Olmi, Mita & Guglielmino, sp. nov. (Japan, Honshu) are described and figured. A key to the genera and species of Japan is presented. Trogloembolemus fujiei sp. nov., collected in the soil at a depth of two metres and almost blind, is the first species of Em-bolemidae with troglobitic habitus.
