Baculofractum Zompro 1995 is a genus of stick insects in the family Lonchodidae, subfamily Lonchodinae represented by three species: B. insigne, B. shelfordi, and B. williemsei, distributed in Indonesia and Malaysia. This paper reports the discovery of a new species of Baculofractum from Mt. Malimumu, Pantaron Range, Bukidnon which also represents the first record of the genus in the Philippines. The new species can be distinguished by the absence of four tubercles at the back of the head’s median ridges and its distinctly elongated operculum exceeding the end of the abdomen.
