Abstract: The Papuan fauna of Synchonnus Waterhouse, 1879 contains only four species distributed in Mysool, Japen, and New Guinea and is less diversified than those of the continental Australia where 16 species have been recorded. Synchonnus occurs in lowlands and in lower mountain forests. A new species, Synchonnus etheringtoni sp. nov., is described from New Guinea, and S. testaceithorax Pic, 1923 is redescribed. All Papuan species are keyed.
Key words: Coleoptera, Lycidae, Synchonnus, taxonomy, new species, morphology, key, New Guinea
