The new braconid genus Papuaontsira n. gen. (type species Papuaontsira villemantae n. sp. from Papua New Guinea, belonging to the subfamily Doryctinae) is described and illustrated. The new genus is similar to Ontsira Cameron, 1906, and its differences are listed. The synonymy of Doryctodes Hellén, 1927 under Ontsira is confirmed.
