Evidence is presented on the synonymy of Hancockitettix humeratus Storozhenko et Pushkar, 2017 syn. nov., (a recently described species from the Cameron Highlands of the Malay peninsula (the only recorded specimen, a female holotype, caught in 2014)) and Eufalconius pendleburyi Günther, 1938, a long-time-no-see species from Bukit Kutu of the Malay peninsula (the only recorded specimen, a female holotype, caught in 1926) — 100 km S of the Cameron Highlands and part of the same massif (Tenasserim range: Titiwangsa Mts.). The holotypes of the two species are conspecific, almost identical in morphology. As a result Hancockitettix Storozhenko et Pushkar, 2017 syn. nov. becomes a junior synonym of Eufalconius Günther, 1938. The original description of Hancockitettix syn. nov. and H. humeratus syn. nov. contains much more data than that of Eufalconius and E. pendleburyi and serves as a very good ‘re-description’. New records of E. pendleburyi found on the social media photo database Flickr from the same massif (Endau Rompin NP, Bukit Fraser) are presented herein. Detailed comparison is given between the genera Austrohancockia Günther, 1938, Discotettix Costa, 1864, Eufalconius, Gibbotettix Zheng, 1992, Hancockella Uvarov, 1940, Paragavialidium Zheng, 1994, and Platygavialidium Günther, 1938.
