The weevil fauna of the Yixian Formation, north-eastern China, is described and compared with other deposits of similar age and older. The fauna contains fossil groups that appear to be basal curculionoids, representing a mixture of taxa belonging to extant lineages and possibly extinct stem-groups. It contrasts particularly with Mesozoic curculionoids described from the Karatau site in southern Kazakhstan and El Montsec, Spain, the Yixian being quite different from the former due to its younger...

: A specimen of Curculionidae (Curculioninae) is described as Arariperhinus monnei gen. et sp. nov. The specimen is preserved on a laminated limestone sample of the Crato Formation (Santana Group), Lower Cretaceous (Aptian–Albian), and was collected from a quarry near Nova Olinda, Chapada do Araripe, State of Ceara, Brazil. The genus is placed in the subfamily Curculioninae because of its strongly convex body and relatively slender rostrum, but mainly by its rounded eyes and lack of a prosternal...

The first dated phylogeny of the weevil subfamily Cryptorhynchinae is presented within a framework of Curculionoidea. The inferred pattern and timing of weevil family relationships are generally congruent with previous studies, but our data are the first to suggest a highly supported sister‐group relationship between Attelabidae and Belidae. Our biogeographical inferences suggest that Cryptorhynchinae s.s. originated in the Late Cretaceous (c. 86 Ma) in South America. Within the ‘Acalles group’ ...

Abstract A new fungus weevil, Arzamazorhinus neli gen. et sp. nov. belonging to the subfamily Anthribinae is described from Primorsky Krai, Upper Cretaceous, Turonian – Coniacian. The new genus differs from other genera of the tribe Ecelonerini in the ventral antennal scrobes and rather long rostrum. It is distinguished from the genus Cretanthribus Legalov, 2009 (tribe Cretanthribini) fungus weevil described from Cretaceous deposits of Khetana in the Russian Far East, by the pronotum possessing ...

A new weevil, Burmorhinus georgei gen. et sp. nov. from the tribe Arthrostenini (Curculionidae: Erirhininae) is described from Cretaceous Burmese amber. The new genus is similar to the genus Thecorhinus Faust, 1887 but differs from the latter in having the body lacking wide scales, the tibiae being slightly widened at the apex, with large spurs, and weakly laminate tarsal claws. It is distinguished from the genus Arthrostenus Schoenherr, 1826 in the body lacking wide scales, the tibiae not serra...

A new tribe, new genus, and new species, Miocenocylas heeri gen. et sp. nov. from the Middle Miocene of Oeningen, Germany (Baden-Wurttemberg; Sarmatian, Upper Freshwater–Molasse Formation) are described. They differ from the tribe Cyladini in the free club articles, antennae inserted near the apex of the rostrum, procoxae located in the middle of the prosternum, the longer pronotum, and in the indistinct elytral striae.

Abstract Host plant shifts of insects can lead to a burst of diversification driven by their arrival in a new adaptive zone. In this context, our study aims to explore timing and patterns in the evolution of the weevil tribe Apionini (Brentidae, Curculionoidea, Coleoptera), particularly in relation to affiliations with their host plants. The classification of Apionini is difficult because of their relatively uniform appearance. Most taxa live mono- or oligophagously on members of Asteraceae or F...

A new genus and species, Palaeotanaos oisensis, is the first described representative of Apioninae from the Lower Eocene Oise amber. The new genus belongs to the tribe Tanaini and is similar to the genus Tanaos Schoenherr, 1826 and differs from it in the convex, not flattened, and slightly elongate body, the antennae inserted in basal one-third of rostrum, comparatively long flagellum, and elongate club, large and strongly convex eyes, narrow and long tibiae without mucro, short precoxal part of...
