Japanese species of the family Myrmeleontidae are revised. The following 17 species are recognized: Myrmeleon formicarius Linnaeus, M. bore (Tjeder), M. solers Walker, M. taiwanensis Miller & Stange (new record from Japan), Baliga micans (McLachlan), Dendroleon pupillaris Gerstaecker), Gatzara jezoensis (Okamoto), Epacanthaclisis moiwana (Okamoto), Distoleon nigricans (Okamoto), Di. contubernalis (McLachlan), Di. bistrigatus (Rambur), Di. boninensis Adams, Neuroleon parvulus (Okamoto) n. comb., Paraglenurus japonicus (McLachlan), Pa. okinawensis (Okamoto), Pseudoformicaleo nubecula (Gerstaecker) and Synclisis japonica (McLachlan). The male of Di. boninensis is recorded for the first time. All Japanese species of Myrmeleontidae are redescribed and illustrated, except for M. taiwanensis for which detailed male and female terminal structures were recently illustrated. A key to the tribes, genera and species of Japanese antlions is provided. In appendix, three new combinations are proposed for three Chinese species, Baliga angustala (Bao et al.), B. coalita (Yang) and B. quangxiensis (Bao et al.): all were formerly assigned to the genus Hagenomyia Banks.
