A review of the trunk‐boring cycad weevils in Australia, with description of a second species of Demyrsus Pascoe, 1872 (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
The discovery of a second species of Demyrsus illustrates a larger diversity of cycad‐associated weevils in Australia than currently known and identifies a further species with the potential to damage and kill cultivated cycads.
Oxymorus (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Entiminae: Oosomini), a new genus with nine new species from South Africa
A new genus Oxymorus Borovec & Meregalli gen. n., belonging to the tribe Oosomini Lacordaire, 1863 of the curculionid subfamily Entiminae, is described. It includes nine new species, all from South
Systematic revision of the genus Isodacrys Sharp, 1911 (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Entiminae: Tanymecini)
Insights into the monophyly of Isodacrys and its phylogenetic relationships with other Tanymecini based on adult morphology are given by implementing a phylogenetic analysis of 43 terminals coded for 72 adult morphological characters.
Contrasting Relationship of True Weevils (Curculionidae) and Woody Plants Diversity in Semi-arid Landscape Units.
There is no general pattern of co-occurrence and diversity among true weevils and plants, indicating that the plant community is not structuring true weevil assemblage in the Caatinga.
The mitochondrial genome of Apion squamigerum (Coleoptera, Curculionoidea, Brentidae) and the phylogenetic implications
This mitogenome was found to be very large, with the total length of 18,562 bp, and phylogenetic analyses robustly supported a sister group of A. squamigerum and Rhopalapion longirostre, namely, that two species of Apioninae (Brentidae) formed a clade.
Coniophloeus, a new genus of Embrithini from South Africa, with description of four new species (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Entiminae)

A new genus, Coniophloeus gen. n., is described for five species of South African weevils known from the Western and Eastern Cape and assigned to the tribe Embrithini Marshall, 1942: Coniophloeus
The Weevil Fauna Preserved in Burmese Amber—Snapshot of a Unique, Extinct Lineage (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea)
The geniculate antennae and long rostrum with exodont mandibles of most Mesophyletidae indicate that they were highly specialised phytophages of early angiosperms preserved in the amber, likely ovipositing in flowers or seeds.
Afromuelleria, a new genus of Trachyphloeini from Limpopo, with descriptions of four new species (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Entiminae)
A new genus, Afromuelleria gen. n, is described for four South African species of weevils assigned to the tribe Trachyphloeini Lacordaire, 1863, and taxonomic status of the new genus is discussed and compared with similar genera of TrachyPHloeini and Embrithini Marshall, 1942.
Descriptions of four new species of Minyomerus Horn, 1876 sec. Jansen & Franz, 2018 (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), with notes on their distribution and phylogeny
The analysis reaffirms the monophyly of Minyomerus [JF2018] with eight unreversed synapomorphies and the species-group placements, possible biogeographic origins, and natural history of the new species are discussed in detail.
Phylogenomic Data Yield New and Robust Insights into the Phylogeny and Evolution of Weevils
A reconstructed timetree for weevils is consistent with a Mesozoic radiation of gymnosperm‐associated taxa to form most extant families and diversification of Curculionidae alongside flowering plants—first monocots, then other groups—beginning in the Cretaceous.
