The family Ibaliidae of the order Hymenoptera in Korea is reviewed. Previously, only one species, Ibalia takachihoi has been recorded in the Korean fauna. In this study, we report three ibaliid species, Ibalia (Ibalia) leucospoides leucospoides, Ibalia (Tremibalia) japonica and Ibalia (Tremibalia) ornata, new to Korean fauna. A key to Korean ibaliid species, redescriptions and illustrations of diagnostic characters are given.
