Mitogenome sequences stabilize the phylogenetics of weevils (Curculionoidea) and establish the monophyly of larval ectophagy.


The weevils and their relatives (superfamily Curculionoidea) constitute a huge radiation of beetles, but basal relationships in this group remain controversial, in particular within the largest family, Curculionidae. We used next-generation sequencing to generate mitochondrial genome data comprising 12 protein coding genes for 27 taxa. Together with two… (More)
