A new genus and species of the weevil tribe Entimini, Nasocomptus obyberaba gen. nov. and sp. nov., are described from the southwestern Amazonian Region (type locality: Brazil, Rondonia, Ouro Preto do Oeste). A cladistic analysis was carried out among representative species of most of the Neotropical genera, including Nasocomptus gen. nov., to provide a phylogenetic hypothesis for the tribe. A single most parsimonious cladogram was obtained: (Entimus (Nasocomptus ((Polyteles, Phaedropus… Expand
