Abstract: A new genus and species, Clinopalpus hanae gen. & sp. nov. (Coleopte- ra: Ripiphoridae: Pelecotominae), is described from the Cameron Highlands, Ma- laysia. Clinopalpus gen. nov. is compared with all known genera of the subfamilies Pelecotominae, Hemirhipidiinae, Ptilophorinae and Micholaeminae and found to share some characters with the first two subfamilies. The genus is characterised by the following combination of characters: four-segmented maxillary palpi with palpomeres 3 and 4 enlarged, oval eyes distinctly incised anteriorly in upper half, 11-segmented antennae with antennomeres 1–3 simple and antennomeres 4–11 bearing long flattened rami anteriorly, pronotum trilobed at base, completely de- veloped elytra, tibial spur formula 0–0–1, and tarsal claws bidentate apically.
