The morphological characteristics of a collection by C. I. Ryoo and K.-H. Ka from the demilitarized zone (DMZ) of Korea, invalidly published as "Astraeus koreana", are re-evaluated, described, and illustrated. Phylogenetic analysis using nrITS sequence data indicate that "Astraeus koreana", an unnamed "Japanese Astraeus group 2", and a Japanese specimen E0059827 all differ from A. hygrometricus var. koreanus and represent a new species, proposed here as Astraeus ryoocheoninii.
