Abstract: The Philippine species of the genus Allorhynchium van der Vecht, 1963 are revised, with three species recognized: A. angulatum sp. nov., A. cariniventre Giordani Soika, 1986, and A. quadrituberculatum (von Schulthess, 1913) (= A. violaceipenne Gusenleitner, 2003, syn. nov.). Three additional species, Allorhynchium argentatum (Fabricius, 1804), A. chinense (de Saussure, 1862), and A. snelleni (de Saussure, 1862), are excluded from the Philippine fauna.
