The African species of the Bruchidius rubicundus group feeding in seeds of Caesalpinioideae are revised. Bruchidius badjii, from West and Central Africa (Ivory Coast, Republic of Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo), feed on Dialium spp. seeds, and Bruchidius lerui, from Kenya, predating upon seeds of Delonix elata, are described. Bruchidius biloboscutus PIC, 1947, from West Africa (Ivory Coast, Senegal) is redescribed. Relationships between seed-beetles feeding on Mimosoideae and those feeding…

Inspection of genital and external morphological traits of B. paicus revealed that the new species belongs to Bruchidius Group 5 (sensu Chûjô, 1937), and comparison of the group to molecular Clades I and II indicates the two groups correspond to each other.

Bruchidius associated with the Mimosoid Dichrostachys cinerea in Africa, with the description of a new species (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Bruchinae)

An identification key based primarily on adult morphology is provided for these species, as well as drawings of male genitalia for Bruchidius rufoniger and B. mabwensis.

Description of previously reported but hitherto undescribed African Bruchidius (Coleoptera: Bruchidae)

Nine species belonging to the Bruchidius rubicundus group and one further species, Bruchius nongoniermai, is described in the Bruchyius centromaculatus group.

Description of previously reported but hitherto undescribed

Nine species belonging to the Bruchidius rubicundus group, and one further species that belongs to a large clade of Mimosoideae feeders, predate upon seeds of Faidherbia albida and various Acacia species are described.

Seed-beetles in the age of the molecule: recent advances on systematics and host-plant association patterns.

A supertree approach is used to reconstruct the phylogenetic relationships of nearly 200 species of seed-beetles and recovers a clear trend toward conservatism in host-plant use at distinct taxonomic levels.



Utilisation des graines de Légumineuses par un peuplement de Bruchidae et d'Anthribidae (Coleoptera) en zone de mosaïque forêt-savane (Lamto: Côte-d'Ivoire)

Use of legunwseeds by brrrchid andazth-ibid beetles (Coleoptera) in a mosaic forest-saturia zone (Lamto : Ivory Coast) and analysis of secondary compounds found only lectins could eventually protect the seed against the family of bruchids.

A New Species Megabruchidius sophorae (Coleoptera, Bruchidae), Feeding on Seeds of Styphnolobium (Fabaceae) New to Bruchidae

The character state of the host for this third Megabruchidius species supports that the genus is ancestral, at least in the subfamily Bruchinae.

Megabruchidius tonkineus (Pic, 1904) (Coleoptera: Bruchidae) first found in Hungary.

Adults of Megabruchidius tonkineus (Pic, 1904) emerged in the laboratory from pods of Gleditsia triacanthos collected in January and in October 2001 at the very centre of Budapest. It is likely that


The present work addresses the question of the monophyly of the large genus Bruchidius SCHILSKY (Coleoptera : Bruchidae) and gives the opportunity to work on a combined molecular data set.

Les Bruchidius consommateurs des graines de Dichrostachys et du genre allié Alantsilodendron en Afrique et à Madagascar (Coleoptera, Bruchidae)

Description de deux nouvelles especes de Bruchidius, B. dichrostachydis et B, securiger, dont la larve se developpe dans les graines de la legumineuse africaine Dichrostachys cinerea (Mimosoideae,

A phylogeny of legumes (Leguminosae) based on analysis of the plastid matK gene resolves many well-supported subclades within the family.

Analysis of the matK data consistently resolves but modestly supports a clade comprising papilionoid taxa that accumulate canavanine in the seeds, which suggests a single origin for the biosynthesis of this most commonly produced of the nonprotein amino acids in legumes.

Parallels in the evolution of the two largest New and Old World seed‐beetle genera (Coleoptera, Bruchidae)

The phylogenetic hypotheses and the evaluation of host‐plant associations both suggest that the two bruchid genera have undergone parallel evolution, as they have independently colonized similar host plants in their respective areas of distribution.
