ABSTRACT. Three new species of the diplopod family Paradoxosomatidae are described from Papua New Guinea: Tectoporus fugilil sp.n., T. jeekeli sp.n. and Eustrongylosoma beroni sp.n. New records of a few more, mainly pantropical species are given. The species “Strongylosoma” hirtipes Carl, 1912 and “S.” constrictum Carl, 1912 from Sulawesi, Indonesia, long suspected to actually belong in Tectoporus, are formally transferred therein: T. hirtipes (Carl, 1912) and T. constrictus (Carl, 1912), both comb.n.
