... This tribe contains in its current concept ~290 species assembled in 41 genera (Franz, 2004(Franz, , 2006(Franz, , 2008Caldara et al., 2014;Haran et al., 2020Haran et al., , 2022de Medeiros & Vanin, 2020). Western and Eastern Hemisphere genera present contrasting morphological features (e.g. the stridulatory plate on tergite VII in males is found only in Eastern Hemisphere species) and might correspond to distinct lineages (Kojima & Morimoto, 2005;Caldara et al., 2014). ...
... The systematic position of the Platypodidae is debated. Some authors [2][3][4][5][6][7]19,[22][23][24][25][26][27][28][29] consider this group as an independent family similar to bark beetles. On the basis of cladistic morphological and molecular genetics, it was proposed that the Platypodidae was a subfamily of Curculionidae [30][31][32][33]. ...
... In our study, the morphological characteristics of the whole mouthparts of E. brandti are similar to those of other weevil's mouthparts. They are all chewing mouthparts, including the labrum, mandibles, maxillae, labium, and hypopharynx [7,24,25,28,33,34]. Some studies show the maxillae structure is uniquely modified in Curculionoidea [7,25,35]. ...
... Currently the rectal valve form is known from only two species ascribed to the Phoenicobatini: Phoenicobates flexirostris Champion and Cylindrotrypetes suffusus Zimmerman (1942), the former having a narrow ring and the latter a 'well-developed loop' (Kuschel 1964). Zimmerman (1942) placed the latter genus in Trypetidini, but without explanation; Morimoto (1995) later tentatively transferred it to Phoenicobatini with his new genus Edaphotrypetes Morimoto, apparently on the basis of the lack of uncus, mucro or pre-mucro apically on the tibia (Phoenicobatini otherwise lack a pre-mucro and have a small uncus) and the broad second tarsomere (a characteristic of Phoenicobates Champion and its close relatives). Morimoto (1995) recognized similarities between Cylindrotrypetes Zimmerman and Edaphotrypetes and the New Zealand Cossoninae genera Novitas Hutton and Arecocryptus Broun (both have the second tarsomere broadened and, like Cylindrotrypetes and Edaphotrypetes, five antennomeres in the funicle), but rejected a placement in the Cossoninae because of the absence of an uncus arising from the dorsal margin of the tibia. ...
... May (1992), describing the leaf-mining habits of the larvae, placed it with other New Zealand leaf-mining weevils Aneuma Pascoe, Hypotagea Pascoe, and Neomycta Pascoe in the Curculionini, while a later morphological description of the larvae emphasized its similarities to the larvae of Rhamphus Clairville and Rhynchaenus Clairville (May 1993). On the basis of this evidence, Kuschel revised its placement into the Rhamphini (Curculioninae; Leschen et al. 2003), a group with adults having swollen hind femora and the ability to jump (e.g., Kojima and Morimoto 1996). Zimmerman (1994) proposed "Geochini" without formal description (and thereby unavailable, see Alonso-Zarazaga and Lyal 1999 andBouchard et al. 2011) and placed it in Curculioninae, near Cryptoplini. ...
... The long snout weevils of the subfamily Baridinae have about 550 genera and 4300 species of which 84% of the genera and 82% of the species are known to occur in the New World (Morimoto & Yoshihara 1996), whereas Mecobaris is known only from India. This genus has not been studied in detail, and the only substantial work on these is by Marshall (1932) on taxonomy and Gardner (1938) on its larval morphology. ...
... From all 111 species, 50 could be identified to species level, the remainder at least to the genus level (two species with some doubt). The state of knowledge in this potentially The following genera could be identified by the following works: [30][31][32][33][34][35][36][37][38][39][40][41][42][43] and museum collections: Amorphoidea (6) and Opseoscapha (1) in Ochyromerini. Two of the three Katsurazo species are clearly different from those described by Kojima (1997) from Sabah. ...

... Biology. Weevils were captured on dead trunks and branches of the broad-leaved trees, and often collected by shifting litter of the forest floor in Japan (Morimoto and Miyakawa, 1995). ...
... Small-and medium-sized green spots are constrained to the dorsal and lateral surfaces of pronotum, elytra, and femora of beetles (Fig. 1). Bagous species have granulate, moderately to strongly pitted non-hydrofuge scales with clear and shellac-like or dense and subopaque waterproof coating, later often concealing scales and cuticle (O'Brien, Askevold, 1992). ...
