The damsel bug genus Rhamphocoris Kirkaldy, 1901 (Hemiptera, Heteroptera, Nabidae, Prostemmatinae, Phorticini) is widely distributed in the Australian, Palaearctic, and Oriental regions; however, no species has been recorded from Japan. To date, R. hasegawai (Ishihara, 1943) has been reported in China, Korea, and Taiwan. In the present study, Rhamphocoris and R. hasegawai are recorded from Japan for the first time, representing the easternmost record of the species.
