Etymology. This species is named for Kee-Jeong Ahn lab alumnus, Korean aquatic beetle specialist, and an enthusiastic supporter of this study, Mr. Dae-Hyun Lee.
Diagnosis. This species can be distinguished from the other species of Brounea by the following combination of characters: large eye, one-half length of temple (Fig. 2 h); male gula with round depression bearing dense setae (Fig. 2 s: arrow); antennomeres 3–8 subquadrate, 9–10 weakly transverse; parameres emarginate at distal one-third with setae at tip (Fig. 3 h).
Description. Length 1.9 –2.0 mm. Body brown, elytra, legs, antennae and maxillary palpi paler (Fig. 1 h). Head. Head triangular, widest across temples (Fig. 2 h). Male gula with round depression bearing dense setae (Fig. 2 s: arrow). Female head unmodified. Antennomeres 1–2 elongate, 3–8 subquadrate, 9–10 weakly transverse. Frontal sulcus shallow and reaching front point of eye (Fig. 2 h). Posterior frontal fovea present and oval. Eye large and prominent, one-half length of temple (Fig. 2 h). Thorax. Prosternum as long as wide, widest at one-third length. Elytra rectangular (Fig. 1 h). Hind wings of both sexes well-developed. Meso- and metaventrites together trapezoidal in ventral view, longer than wide. Abdomen. Abdominal tergite IV with a pair of oval or transverse patches of microtrichia. Aedeagus. Apical lobe triangular (Fig. 3 h). Phallobase symmetrical and rounded (Fig. 3 h). Parameres symmetrical, emarginate at distal one-third with setae at tip (Fig. 3 h).
