Eight new species of the New Guinean weevil genus 'Apirocalus' Pascoe are described; 'A. carinirostris', 'A. fordi', 'A. grossus', 'A. perturbans', 'A. riedeli', 'A. scaber', 'A. specillifer' and 'A. verrucosus', together with three new subspecies: 'A. cornutus bosavii', 'A. sedlaceki laminifer' and 'A. avus tarii'. One previously described species is reduced to subspecific status as 'A. cornutus paradoxus' Thompson, stat. n. The known ranges of several other species are extended.
