The Entiminae are broad-nosed weevils constituting the most diverse subfamily of Curculionidae, with over 50 tribes. We performed Bayesian and Maximum Parsimony combined phylogenetic analyses with the main objective of testing higher-level relationships and the naturalness of the major Neotropical and Southern South American (Patagonia and Andes) tribes, including some members from other regions. We compiled a data matrix of 67 terminal units with 63 Entiminae species, as well as four outgroup… 

Molecular and Morphological Phylogenetic Analysis of Naupactus Dejean (Curculionidae: Entiminae) and Allied Genera: The Dilemma of Classification

TLDR
It is concluded that Naupactus is non-monophyletic, even though most species can be recognized based on a particular combination of morphological characters, which are probably symplesiomorphic.

Taxonomic Placement of the Genus Aporius Kuschel (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Entiminae), with a Discussion of the Subtribe Piazomiina (Tanymecini) in South America

TLDR
Within Naupactini, Aporius is probably related to Hadropus Schoenherr, 1826, based on the morphology of the rostrum, antennae, and genitalia, and the taxonomic status of the remaining members of South American Piazomiina is discussed.

Variability and distribution of the golden-headed weevil Compsusauricephalus (Say) (Curculionidae: Entiminae: Eustylini)

TLDR
The morphological variation of Compsusauricephalus is discussed across its distributional range, by revising and updating its distributionAL range, based on data from entomological collections in the U.S.A. and Canada.

Status of knowledge of the broad-nosed weevils of Colombia (Coleoptera, Curculionidae, Entiminae)

  • J. Girón
  • Biology
    Neotropical Biology and Conservation
  • 2020
TLDR
Information on the distribution of entimine species in Colombia is compiled for the first time, including complete references to each original description and available taxonomic revisions.

Systematic revision of the genus Isodacrys Sharp, 1911 (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Entiminae: Tanymecini)

TLDR
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.

Brilliant angle-independent structural colours preserved in weevil scales from the Swiss Pleistocene

TLDR
Three-dimensional photonic nanostructures preserved in brightly coloured scales of two weevils, belonging to the genus Phyllobius or Polydrusus, from the Pleistocene of Switzerland are reported and it is revealed that the subfossil scales possess a single-diamond photonic crystal nanostructure.

Molecular phylogenetics of Australian weevils (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea): exploring relationships in a hyperdiverse lineage through comparison of independent analyses

TLDR
An estimation of the phylogeny of Australian weevils and of the divergence dates of the major lineages based on a multi‐gene data set spanning ∼3.5 kbp of DNA sequence is presented and a number of relationships and age estimates are recovered that are congruent with those obtained by other recent weevil phylogeny estimates.

Phylogenetic analysis of the Pantomorus-Naupactus complex (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Entiminae) from North and Central America

TLDR
The first cladistic analysis of the Pantomorus-Naupactus complex from North and Central America, based on 35 species and 61 morphological characters, plus 1151 bp of the mtDNA COI and Cyt b genes yielded a single most parsimonious cladogram that allows recognition of two main lineages.

Phylogeny of the Genus Dichotrachelus (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Cyclominae)

TLDR
An evaluation of the most important characters that led to the phylogenetic reconstruction indicated the male genital sclerite as the most useful structure to characterize the different clades of Dichotrachelus.

Phylogeny of the tribe Naupactini (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) based on morphological characters

TLDR
The first comprehensive phylogenetic analysis for this tribe is presented based on a data matrix of 100 adult morphological characters scored for 70 species, representing 55 genera of Naupactini (ingroup) and four outgroups belonging to the entimine tribes Otiorhynchini, Entimini, Eustylini and Tanymecini.

Higher Level Phylogeny of Curculionidae (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea) based mainly on Larval Characters, with Special Reference to Broad‐Nosed Weevils

TLDR
The hypothesis of monophyly of broad‐nosed weevils is not accepted; the Entiminae are justified as monophyletic and their natural classification into tribes is proposed and the phylogenetic position and relationships of higher taxa of Curculionidae are discussed.

Mitochondrial DNA phylogenetic analysis of the genus Laparocerus (Coleoptera, Curculionidae, Entiminae). I. The Madeiran clade

TLDR
The Laparocerus subgenus Drouetius from the Azores is revealed to be a separate and distant outgroup, in agreement with its morphological distinctiveness, deserving an independent genus status.

Molecular and Morphological Phylogenetic Analysis of Naupactus Dejean (Curculionidae: Entiminae) and Allied Genera: The Dilemma of Classification

TLDR
It is concluded that Naupactus is non-monophyletic, even though most species can be recognized based on a particular combination of morphological characters, which are probably symplesiomorphic.

Phylogenetic assessment of the Caribbean weevil genus Lachnopus Schoenherr (Coleoptera : Curculionidae : Entiminae)

A cladistic analysis of the genera of the tribe Entimini (Coleoptera, Curculionidae), with description of a new genus and species from the Amazonian Region

Statistical Evaluation of Monophyly in the ‘Broad-Nosed Weevils’ through Molecular Phylogenetic Analysis Combining Mitochondrial Genome and Single-Locus Sequences (Curculionidae: Entiminae, Cyclominae, and Hyperinae)

TLDR
This study assesses the monophyly of tribes and subfamilies within the diverse ‘broad-nosed weevils’ through analysis of single-locus sequence data for mitochondrial cox1 and rrnL genes, in combination with a ‘backbone’ of complete and near-complete mitochondrial genome sequences.
