Abstract
Curupirina papuana sp. n. and an unnamed species of a probably new genus of Apistomyiini (Diptera:Blephariceridae) are described from the Ok Tedi, a tributary of the Fly River, Papua New Guinea. This is the first report of the family from the island; its zoogeographical significance is discussed with reference to the long-presumed role of the island in the evolution and disperal of the tribe Apistomyiini.
