Abstract: 

Pseudagrion woodlarkensis sp. nov., a new damselfly species from Woodlark Island, Papua New Guinea, is described and male and female characters are illustrated. The new species differs from all regional congeners by having a predominantly yellow thorax with bold black stripes, and males can be clearly distinguished from all Papuan Pseudagrion species by the complex and characteristic cerci which bear an inner process that is oriented obliquely upwards and directed posteriorly. Description of this species brings the number of Pseudagrion species currently known from the Papuan biogeographic subregion to 17.
