Four genera and sixteen species are described as new: Ctenognathus davidsoni Larochelle and Larivière new species, Ctenognathus earlyi Larochelle and Larivière new species, Ctenognathus garnerae Larochelle and Larivière new species, Ctenognathus hoarei Larochelle and Larivière new species, Ctenognathus kaikoura Larochelle and Larivière new species, Ctenognathus marieclaudiae Larochelle new species, Ctenognathus perumalae Larochelle and Larivière new species, Ctenognathus takahe Larochelle and Larivière new species, Ctenognathus tawanui Larochelle and Larivière new species, Ctenognathus tepaki Larochelle and Larivière new species, Ctenognathus urewera Larochelle and Larivière new species, Kiwiplatynus Larochelle and Larivière new genus, Kiwiplatynus taranaki Larochelle and Larivière new species, Kupeplatynus Larochelle and Larivière new genus, Maoriplatynus Larochelle and Larivière new genus, Maoriplatynus marrisi Larochelle and Larivière new species, Prosphodrus mangamuka Larochelle and Larivière new species, Prosphodrus sirvidi Larochelle and Larivière new species, Prosphodrus waimana Larochelle and Larivière new species, Tuiplatynus Larochelle and Larivière new genus. Lectotypes are designated for twelve taxa: Anchomenus adamsi Broun, 1886, Anchomenus colensonis White, 1846, Anchomenus feredayi Bates, 1874, Anchomenus helmsi Sharp, 1881, Anchomenus intermedius Broun, 1908, Anchomenus macrocoelis Broun, 1908, Anchomenus munroi Broun, 1893, Anchomenus sophronitis Broun, 1908, Colpodes crenatus Chaudoir, 1878, Colpodes neozelandicus Chaudoir, 1878, Ctenognathus littorellus Broun, 1908, and Ctenognathus pictonensis Sharp, 1886.Six new combinations are established: Ctenognathus bidens (Chaudoir, 1878) = Kiwiplatynus bidens (Chaudoir, 1878); Ctenognathus crenatus (Chaudoir, 1878) = Kupeplatynus crenatus (Chaudoir, 1878); Ctenognathus lucifugus (Broun, 1886) = Kupeplatynus lucifugus (Broun, 1886); Ctenognathus sulcitarsis (Broun, 1880) = Kupeplatynus sulcitarsis (Broun, 1880); Ctenognathus libitus (Broun, 1914) = Tuiplatynus libitus (Broun, 1914); Ctenognathus sophronitis (Broun, 1908) = Tuiplatynus sophronitis (Broun, 1908).Fifteen new synonymies are established: Ctenognathus littorellus Broun, 1908 = Ctenognathus adamsi(Broun, 1886); Anchomenus parabilis Broun, 1880 = Ctenognathus cardiophorus (Chaudoir, 1878); Anchomenus integratus Broun, 1908 = Ctenognathus colensonis (White, 1846); Anchomenus macrocoelis Broun, 1908 = Ctenognathus edwardsii (Bates, 1874); Ctenognathus actochares Broun, 1894 = Ctenognathus elevatus(White, 1846); Anchomenus punctulatus Broun, 1877, Anchomenus montivagus Broun, 1880, Anchomenus perrugithorax Broun, 1880, Anchomenus politulus Broun, 1880, Anchomenus suborbithorax Broun, 1880, and Colpodes neozelandicus Chaudoir, 1878 = Ctenognathus novaezelandiae (Fairmaire, 1843); Ctenognathus simmondsi Broun, 1912 = Ctenognathus pictonensis Sharp, 1886; Anchomenus (Platynus) cheesemani Broun, 1880 and Calathus deformipes Broun, 1880 = Kupeplatynus crenatus (Chaudoir, 1878); Anchomenus munroi Broun, 1893 = Kupeplatynus lucifugus (Broun, 1886). Ctenognathus elevatus (White, 1846), previously synonymized with Ctenognathus novaezelandiae (Fairmaire, 1843), is reinstated as full species. A revision of all taxa is provided. Descriptions, identification keys, illustrations of male genitalia, habitus photos, distributional data and maps are given. Extensive information on ecology, biology, dispersal power, and collecting techniques is included for each species.
