New Curculioninae (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) in Dominican amber

George Poinar, Jr. and Andrei A. Legalov

Plain Language Abstract

The present study describes a new genus and four new species of Curculioninae from Dominican amber. A new genus, Neosibinia, is described in the tribe Tychiini. A new species of Derelomus Schoenherr, 1825, which is the first fossil representative of this genus in Hispaniola, is described in the tribe Derelomini. Two new species of Anthonomus Germar, 1817, in the tribe Anthonomini, are the first members of this genus known from Dominican amber. Together with past records of weevils in Dominican amber, it is apparent that Hispaniolan weevils were more diverse in the Cenozoic than they are today.
