In a study of material of microlepidoptera in North Korea that was collected during the zoological expeditions (1970s–1980s) conducted under a scientific agreement between Polish and North Korean academies of science, 17 species belonging to the superfamily Gelechioidea are recognized. Of the total, 11 species of Gelechiidae, two species of Oecophoridae, and two species of Coleophoridae are newly reported from North Korea. Scrobipalpa atriplicella (Fisher von Rölslerstamm, 1841) of Gelechiidae is reported for the first time from the Korean Peninsula. Images of adults and genitalia of all species are given.
