Natural and sexual selection become visible : Animal – Plant interactions between the parasitic weevil Rhopalapion longirostre
TLDR
Fitness components of the interactions between the weevil Rhopalapion longirostre, Apionidae, Coleoptera and its host plant Alcea rosea, Malvaceae were investigated to reveal that the optimal conditions for successful development of the weevils depended on the availability of seed capsules characterized by a high number of well developed seeds, few undeveloped and few spoiled seeds.
Sexual dimorphism in head structures of the weevil Rhopalapion longirostre (Olivier 1807) (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea): a response to ecological demands of egg deposition
TLDR
The present study reveals that the evolutionary emergence of elongated rostra was a key event in the adaptive radiation of weevils, enabling females to bore long channels for egg deposition into various parts of host plants.
Weevils, weevils, weevils everywhere*
TLDR
The evolutionary history of weevils is mapped as a sequence of key evolutionary innovations that together have led to the phenomenal diversification and success ofWeevils.
Towards a phylogenetic system of derelomine flower weevils (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
TLDR
A revised phylogenetic classification for derelomine flower weevils is proposed, based on a cladistic analysis of 115 outgroup and ingroup taxa and 155 primarily morphological characters, indicating that several genera must be excluded from the tribe.
ECOMORPHOLOGICAL ADAPTATION OF ACORN WEEVILS TO THEIR OVIPOSITION SITE
TLDR
Comparisons between closely related species in different habitats provide a window into understanding how biotic factors shape evolutionary pathways and suggest that seed size is an important selective agent for changes in rostrum length along with body size and thus may be a key factor promoting morphological differentiation in the genus Curculio.

A taxonomic and biogeographic review of the invertebrates of the Central Eastern Rainforest Reserves of Australia (CERRA) World Heritage Area, and adjacent regions
TLDR
The Gondwanan World Heritage rainforests of Australia’s subtropics support an invertebrate biota that reflects diverse evolutionary histories and there is a substantial level of endemism within the fauna.
Taxonomy, phylogeny, and zoogeography of the weevil genus Euops (Insecta: Coleoptera: Curculionoidea) in the Papuan Region
TLDR
The transfer apparatus of the male genitalia proved to be of critical importance for the diagnosis of species and the monophyly of the recognized species groups of Euops was confirmed except for the simulans-group which is difficult to define at its base.
Biodiversidad de Chrysomelidae (Coleoptera) en México Biodiversity of Chrysomelidae (Coleoptera) in Mexico
TLDR
A general review of the family Chrysomelidae in Mexico is presented, finding that Veracruz, Oaxaca and Guerrero have registered the highest number of species.
Morphology and identification of the pupae of several species of soil-dwelling broad-nosed weevils from Central Europe (Coleoptera, Curculionidae, Entiminae).
TLDR
Keys to the pupae of 14 genera of broad-nosed weevils, and to several species of Phyllobius and Otiorhynchus, are presented and characteristic features including chaetotaxy, habitus and measurements are given.
