Seven species of the genus Melanaphis van der Goot are recognized in Korea, including M. sorini Halbert and Remaudière new to Korea. Morphometric analysis is performed based on 27 major characteristics to determine the morphometric correlation between species and to suggest useful diagnostic characters in this species complex. We provide the identification key based on the results of the morphometric analysis.
