Australodon gen. nov. is described for A. nearnsi sp. nov. from subtropical rainforests of the southern Queensland and northern New South Wales in Australia. Australodon belongs in Cerambycinae but it cannot be placed in any recognized tribe based on adult morphology; it is considered a genus incertae sedis, awaiting further research on higher classification of Cerambycinae. The males of Australodon have massive saber-tooth-like mandibles not frequent in other Cerambycinae members.
