The guttulinervis group is proposed for a monophyletic group of four northern New Guinean species of the cicada genus Baeturia Stål, 1866. B. guttulinervis Blöte, 1960, is redescribed and three species (B. biroi, B. inconstans, and B. roonensis) are described as new to science. The phylogenetic position of the guttulinervis group, within the genus Baeturia, is discussed. The distribution of shared characters suggests a sister group relationship with the conviva group. A key to the males is provided and a map of distribution is presented.
