Three homolid crabs, Homolomannia sibogae Ihle, 1912, Latreillopsis bispinosa Henderson, 1888, and Moloha majora (Kubo, 1936) from around the Jeju Islands, southern Korean waters, are briefly described here. Although these species occur widely in the West Pacific or Indo-West Pacific, they all represent the first record of their species and genus in Korean waters. The family Homolidae currently comprises four species in Korea. Brief descriptions and illustrations of selected parts are provided in this article.
