The new genus Papuacocelus n. gen. (Type-species: Papuacocelus papuanus n. sp.) is described from Papua New Guinea (Morobe Province) and is related to Dryococelus Gurney, 1947, Thaumatobactron Gunther, 1929 and Eurycantha Boisduval, 1835. The type-species Papuacocelus papuanus n. sp. is described and illustrated from both sexes. The male holotype is deposited in BMNH, the female paratype in the first author’s collection (FH). The monotypic genus Dryococelus Gurney, 1947 (Type-species… 
A molecular phylogeny of Phasmatodea with emphasis on Necrosciinae, the most species‐rich subfamily of stick insects
TLDR
The traditional view that Neopromachus and related taxa (Neopromachini sensu Günther) are a subgroup of Lonchodinae are reinstate and transfer those taxa + the New Guinean Eurycanthinae accordingly.

TLDR
Behavioural observations reveal that this species is very different from other Australian stick insects, but similar in many ways to overseas members of the Eurycanthinae.
Extreme convergence in stick insect evolution: phylogenetic placement of the Lord Howe Island tree lobster
TLDR
It is concluded that the phenotypic traits leading to the traditional classification are convergent adaptations to ground-living behaviour, and molecular dating analyses indicate an ancient divergence between Dryococelus and its Australian relatives.
