The present paper is a continuation of earlier papers concerning the Tachinidae collected in North Korea by six expeditions of researchers from the Institute of Zoology PAS, Warsaw, Poland. Thirteen species representing seven genera of the subfamily Dexiinae have been identified in the collected material. Nine species are reported for the first time in the fauna of Korea. One of these, Dexia seticincta Mesnil was previously known only from the original description. Two other species: Dexia violovitshi Kolomiets and Dinera miranda Mesnil were rarely registered. At present, 15 species of the Dexiinae are recorded from the Korean Peninsula.
