  title={A taxonomic monograph of the Middle American leaf-litter inhabiting weevil genus Theognete Champion (Coleoptera: Curculionidae; Molytinae; Lymantini)},
  author={Robert Samuel. Anderson},
The formerly monobasic genus Theognete Champion is revised. The two syntypes of Theognete laevis Champion are found to represent two species, one of which is described as T. championi Anderson, new species. Another 92 new species are also recognized. The 94 known species are grouped into 8 informal species groups, based largely on the structure of the thoracic sterna. These are (numbers of species in group and distribution for each species in parentheses): Theognete araneiformis species group… Expand
