Annotated key to weevils of the world. Part 2. Subfamily Molytinae (Coleoptera, Curculionidae)

Abstract

A.A. Legalov

Two new tribes Tranesini Legalov, trib. n. (type genus Tranes Schoenherr, 1843) and Eudyasmini Legalov, trib. n. (type genus Eudyasmus Pascoe, 1885) are described. The systematic position of the tribe Arachnopodini Lacordaire, 1865, placem. n. and genus Paracamptopsis Hustache, 1929, placem. n. are changed. Changes of status for Cotasteromimini Morimoto, 1962, stat. n., Thrombosternini Voss, 1965, stat. n., Sclerocardiini Lacordaire, 1865, stat. n. and Styanacina Chujo et Voss, 1960, stat n. are made. Statuses of Colobodini Voss, 1958, stat. res., Plinthini Lacordaire, 1863, stat. res. and Cnemidontini Kuschel, 1955, stat. res. are recovered. A key to the tribes and subtribes of Molytinae is provided. Systematic list of tribes and subtribes of Molytinae is given.

Keywords: Insecta; Coleoptera; Curculionoidea; new taxa; new statuses; check list; key
