Total 242 Rana nigromaculata and 9 R. catesbeiana were collected from the various localities in Korea from February 1989 to July 1991, and their lungs were examined. Five species in genus Haematoloechus, i.e., H. sibiricus japonicus (Yamaguti, 1936), H. nanchangensis Hsiung, 1934, H. variegatus (Rudolphi, 1819), H. lobatus (Seno, 1907), H. lobatus koreanus, were identified in this study. Among them, H. lobatus koreanus was a new subspecies and H. variegatus and H. lobatus were newly recorded from Korea.
