Weevils, weevils, weevils everywhere*
An overview is presented of the progress made on the taxonomy, classification and phylogeny of weevils in the 250 years since the first taxonomic descriptions of weevils by Carolus Linnaeus. TheExpand
Identification and molecular phylogenetics of the cryptic species of theGonipterus scutellatuscomplex (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Gonipterini)
The Eucalyptus Weevil, generally referred to as Gonipterus scutellatus Gyllenhal, 1833 is a significant pest of Eucalyptus species in Africa, America, Europe and New Zealand. It has recently become aExpand
A reclassification of the weevil subfamily Cyclominae (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
The structure of mainly the ovipositor is used to better define and constitute the tribes of the weevil subfamily Cyclominae, whose composition and classification are highly confused in existingExpand
Phylogenomic Data Yield New and Robust Insights into the Phylogeny and Evolution of Weevils
Abstract The phylogeny and evolution of weevils (the beetle superfamily Curculionoidea) has been extensively studied, but many relationships, especially in the large family Curculionidae (trueExpand
The host range of the Eucalyptus Weevil, Gonipterus “scutellatus” Gyllenhal (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), in South Africa
Abstract• IntroductionThe Eucalyptus Weevil (Gonipterus “scutellatus” Gyllenhal) is a notorious pest of eucalypt plantations around the world, but its host range differs across its area ofExpand
Molecular phylogenetics of Australian weevils (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea): exploring relationships in a hyperdiverse lineage through comparison of independent analyses
With over 60 000 described species in approximately 5800 genera, weevils (Curculionoidea) represent one of the most diverse and species‐rich superfamilies of eukaryotes on the planet. Recent attemptsExpand
Annotated catalogue of Australian weevils  (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea).
This catalogue presents the first-ever complete inventory of all described taxa of Australian weevils, including both valid and invalid names. The geographical scope spans mainland Australia and itsExpand
Molecular systematics and evolution in an African cycad-weevil interaction: Amorphocerini (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Molytinae) weevils on Encephalartos.
Weevils in the tribe Amorphocerini have been implicated in pollination of Encephalartos species in southern Africa. The services they render these plants and the unique attributes of the cycad-weevilExpand
Phylogeny of the Oxycoryninae sensu lato (Coleoptera : Belidae) and evolution of host-plant associations
Phylogenetic relationships among the genera of the subfamily Oxycoryninae and other belids (Curculionoidea) were reconstructed by cladistic analysis using 21 terminals and 98 characters: 62 fromExpand
