The teardrop threadfin bream, Nemipterus isacanthus (Bleeker, 1873), is reported from northern New Guinea for the first time based on specimens caught by hook and line, and photographed in June 2008 and September 2014 at Kamiali Wildlife Management Area (KWMA), Morobe Province, Papua New Guinea.  A large, permanent population exists at KWMA, thus the known range of N. isacanthus is extended by at least 1400 km. Morphometric and meristic data for specimens caught in September 2014 are provided.
