The genus Opogona was described by Zeller in 1853. Opogona was included in the Lyonetiadae by Flecher (1929), and then it was transfered to the Tineidae by David (1978). Opogona nipponica and O. thiadelpha, are recorded by Park(1983) for the first time from Korea. After that, O. sacchari is discovered at greenhouse nursery growing an ornamental plant all over the country in 1998, and is identified by K. T. Park (CIS) and Smithsonian David (Smithsonian Institution, America) at request of RDA (Rural Development Administration). Therefore genus Opogona are recognized from Korea as follows: Opogona nipponica, O. thiadelpha, O. sacchari, and Opogona thiadelpha. They are very similar to each other, except on O. nipponica for the color of vertex on head. But it is not correct to distinguish these species by existing key. In the present study, two species are redescribed with adults and genitalia of both sexes. After we draw up new keys to distinguish these similar two species, O. nipponica, and O. thiadelpha. And some illustrations of adults, venations, male and female genitalia are provided.

2006년 춘계응용곤충학회는 경남 통영의 금호마리나리조트에서 열렸다. 이번 학회에서는 국내의 Opogona속에 대해서 정리해 발표했다. 두무늬좀나방과 노랑머리좀나방의 구분에 대해 기존의 두부의 정수리부분 색을 이용한 방법이 잘못되었음을 생식기 및 시맥, 외부형태의 차이등을 지적해 비교하였다. 또한 국내에 자생한다고는 볼 수 없으나 세계적인 해충으로 알려진 바나나좀나방의 국내 분포에 대해 간단히 언급하였다.
