The subfamily Protoscelinae from the Middle to Late Jurassic of Karatau is transferred from the family Chrysomelidae to the family Anthribidae. The genus Protoscelis, comprising five species, is reviewed. Males and females of the genus are described and keys to the identification of male and female specimens are provided. The new species P. medvedevi sp. nov. is described. The generic names Cerambyomima Medvedev, 1968, Pseudomegamerus Medvedev, 1968 and Protosceloides Medvedev, 1968 are… 
Mesozoic leaf beetles of the tribe Mesolpinini trib. nov. (Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae) from the Lower Cretaceous
This publication is based on recent studies of Lower Cretaceous leaf beetles from the Yixian Formation (Liaoning, China), which are represented by five new species of one new genus Mesolpinus gen. nov. of the subfamily Chrysomelinae, which is the oldest known group of the family in the fossil record.
Review of the Jurassic Weevils of the Genus Belonotaris Arnoldi (Coleoptera: Nemonychidae) with a Straight Rostrum
The Jurassic Nemonychidae probably developed on Bennettitales and were also associated with gymnosperms of other groups (Cycadales, Ginkgoales, Czekanowskiales, and Coniferales).
The Mesozoic stage of evolution of the family Nemonychidae (Coleoptera, Curculionoidea)
The Mesozoic stage in the evolution of the family Nemonychidae is studied; 80 species of 42 genera are recorded in the Mesozoics fauna and the phylogeny and morphology of this family are considered.
New tribes of the superfamily Curculionoidea (Coleoptera) in Burmese amber

Abstract. A new fungus weevil, Glaesotropis (Electranthribus) rohdendorfi sp. nov. (Coleoptera: Anthribidae), is described from Priabonian Rovno amber. It is similar to G . ( E .) zherikhini
New Anthribidae (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea) in Dominican and Mexican ambers
The genera Toxonotus, Eugonus, Piesocorynus, Piezobarra, Neoxenus and Cyptoxanus are reported in the fossil state for the first time and further demonstrate the diversity of the Curculionoidea fauna in New World amber.

A new subfamily, Mongolocarinae subfam. nov. of the family Ithyceridae, from the Middle-Upper Jurassic and Lower Cretaceous of Asia is described. It includes five genera with five species: Palaeocar
The first record of anthribid beetle from the Jurassic of Kazakhstan (Coleoptera: Anthribidae)
A new subfamily, Juranthribinae, new genera Juranth ribus and Karanthribus, and new species are described from the Middle-Upper Jurassic of Karatau, this is the earliest known record of anthribids.
Fossil history of Mesozoic weevils (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea)
Changes of family, genera and species abundance during the Mesozoic revealed three distributional patterns and the change of weevil fauna during this period was due to the expansion of the angiosperms, which provided multiple niches in their vegetative and reproductive organs for weevil development.
Phylogenetic reconstruction of weevil superfamily Curculionoidea (coleoptera) using the SYNAP method
Phylogenetic relationships within the superfamily Curculionoidea were reconstructed. Autapomorphies of the superfamily Curculionoidea include more or less pronounced snout, clubbed antennae, and
