Abstract
All 142 known species of Curculionoidea in Eocene amber are documented, including one species of Nemonychidae, 16 species of Anthribidae, six species of Belidae, 10 species of Rhynchitidae, 13 species of Brentidae, 70 species of Curcuionidae, two species of Platypodidae, and 24 species of Scolytidae. Oise amber has eight species, Baltic amber has 118 species, and Rovno amber has 16 species. Nine new genera and 18 new species are described from Baltic amber. Four new synonyms are noted: Palaeometrioxena Legalov, 2012, syn. nov. is synonymous with Archimetrioxena Voss, 1953; Paleopissodes weigangae Ulke, 1947, syn. nov. is synonymous with Electrotribus theryi Hustache, 1942; Electrotribus erectosquamata Rheinheimer, 2007, syn. nov. is synonymous with Succinostyphlus mroczkowskii Kuska, 1996; Protonaupactus Zherikhin, 1971, syn. nov. is synonymous with Paonaupactus Voss, 1953. Keys for Eocene amber Curculionoidea are given. There are the first records of Aedemonini and Camarotini, and genera Limalophus and Cenocephalus in Baltic amber.

A new species, Dorytomus groehni Bukejs & Legalov sp. n. is described and illustrated from Eocene Baltic amber. The new species differs from D. nudus Legalov, 2016 primarily in longer and wider body size, narrower and longer rostrum, slightly convex interstriae distinctly wider than elytral striae and finely punctate pronotum with semierect setae.

Based on a well-preserved specimen, Pseudomesauletes groehni sp. n. is described and illustrated from Upper Eocene Rovno amber (Ukraine). It is the first fossil record of Rhynchitidae from this Lagerstatte.

Pseudoergania perkovskyi gen. et sp. nov. is described and illustrated from Baltic amber. The new genus is similar to the oriental genus Ergania Pascoe, 1882, but differs in the tibia lacking uncus, transverse-oval eyes, evenly convex elytra, antennal scrobes directed under the eyes, and metaepisterna expanding towards the metacoxae. This is the first record of the subtribe Erganiina in fossil state, and the first described representative of the tribe Curculionini in Baltic amber.

Four new weevil species, Mesocordylusdominicus sp. nov. (Dryophthorinae: Orthognathini), Derelomus miocaenicus sp. nov. (Curculioninae: Acalyptini), Anthonomus (Anthonomus) clarki sp. nov. (Curculioninae: Anthonomini) and Compsus (Compsus) poinari sp. nov. (Entiminae: Eustylini) are described from Early Miocene Dominican amber.

A new weevil, Groehnius electrum Bukejs and Legalov, gen. et sp. nov. (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Curculioninae), is described from Eocene Baltic amber. This new genus is similar to the genus Archaeoeugnomus Legalov, 2016 from Baltic amber but differs in the femora without ventral teeth, and the scape not reaching the anterior margin of the eye. It is the second record of the tribe Eugnomini in the Eocene.

Abstract. A new weevil, Arostropsis perkovskyi Bukejs and Legalov, sp. nov. (urn:lsid:zoobank.org:act:408ECE71-B191-4381-AA39-C27A3A1DA082; Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Entiminae), is described from Late Eocene Rovno amber. The new species differs from Arostropsis groehni Yunakov et Kirejtshuk, 2011 from Baltic amber in the pronotum lacking a distinct lateral ridge, it has a shorter rostrum, antennomere 2 is subequal to antennomere 3, it has wider elytra with weaker convex humeral calli and the pr...

A new genus, Baltocoeliodes gen. n. (type species: B. sontagae sp. n.) is described and illustrated from Eocene Baltic amber. Baltocoeliodes is close to Coeliodinus Dieckmann, 1972 but differs by having the femora with a large tooth, robust elytra, and elytral intervals with rasp-like granules. It differs from the genus Brevicoeliodes Korotyaev, 1997 by the short apical comb of setae on the protibiae, the long and curved rostrum, femora with a large tooth, and elytral intervals with rasp-like gr...

Abstract In the world of insects, beetles rule. Evolutionary and palaeoecological interpretations using fossil beetles from Cretaceous ambers have become increasingly frequent in recent years, consequently leading to the discovery of an increasing number of new coleopteran species. By the end of 2019, a total of 364 new species from 81 families (some of them only known as fossils) were compiled, which are presented in this article. Beetles are currently among the most important pollinators of ba...

The paper is the first of a series, which aims to present a consistent interpretation of the suprageneric taxa of fossil beetles in the current century and their generic and species composition. Order Coleoptera is considered in composition of the superorder Coleopteroidea Handlirsch, 1903 (= Coleopterida sensu Boudreaux, 1979, nec Pearse, 1936) together with orders Skleroptera and Strepsiptera, and also with the family Umenocoleidae of unclear position. This paper includes the archostematan sup...
