Abstract: Simodactylus vanualevu new species and S. gagneorum new species are described from Viti Levu, Fiji. A key is presented to separate the species of Simodactylus recorded from the Fiji Archipelago. Simodactylus delfini is newly recorded from American Samoa. A reassignment of Simodactylus to Physorhinini is given on the basis of larval characters.
