The present study describes Centuriarus n. gen., a new genus of Eneopterinae crickets from Papua Island (Papua New Guinea and Indonesia), which belongs to the Lebinthini tribe. The type species Centuriarus centurio (Brunner von Wattenwyl, 1898) n. comb., formerly Eurepa centurio, is redescribed and a lectotype is designated. Another Eurepa species, Eurepa punctata (Brunner von Wattenwyl, 1898), formerly Piestodactylus punctatus, is transferred to Lebinthus based on the original description and observation of one female syntype. Descriptions focus on general morphology, male and female genitalia, and forewing venation.
