The late Pleistocene‐Holocene fossil record of megapodes (Aves: Megapodiidae) in the Fiji Islands is examined. Three new taxa are recorded from the group: a new genus and species are erected for a flightless form from Viti Levu that rivals in size the extinct Svlviornis of New Caledonia; a large, flightless species of Megapodius is described from Viti Levu; and Megapodius alimentumSteadman is recorded from Lakeba and Mago islands in the Lau Group. The tarsometatarsus of M. alimentumis redescribed.
