ItemThe Falklandius generic group : cladistic analysis with description of new taxa (Coleoptera, Curculionidae, Rhytirrhinini). American Museum novitates ; no. 3121(New York : American Museum of Natural History, 1995) Morrone, Juan J.; Anderson, Robert Samuel."The Falklandius generic group is endemic to the subantarctic dominion of southern South America. Its four genera and ten species (in cladistic sequence) are as follows: Falklandiopsis, new genus (F. magellanica [Morrone], new combination), Telurus Kuschel (T. dissimilis [Fairmaire] and T. caudiculatus, new species), Lanteriella Morrone (L. microphtalma Morrone), and Falklandius Enderlein (F. antarcticus [Stierlin]; F. chilensis, new species; F. peckorum, new species; F. turbificatus Enderlein; F. kuscheli Morrone; and F. goliath Morrone). Keys for identifying the genera and species are provided. Falklandiopsis is described, Telurus is revised, and two new species of Falklandius are described and illustrated. Geographical distribution of the species of the group is included"--P. . ItemNew genera and species of weevils from the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador, and Cocos Island, Costa Rica (Coleoptera, Curculionidae, Entiminae, Entimini). American Museum novitates ; no. 3299(New York, NY : American Museum of Natural History, 2000) Anderson, Robert Samuel.; Lanteri, Analía Alicia.A new genus, Galapagonotus Anderson and Lanteri, is described to accommodate Otiorhynchus cuneiformis Waterhouse from the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador. Galapagonotus cuneiformis (Waterhouse) is redescribed and a neotype is designated. Galapagonotus is placed within the tribe Entimini, likely in or near the Eustylus group of genera. The species appears restricted to elevations from 300 to 790 m in native Scalesia, Miconia, and fern-sedge habitats in the archipelago. A second new genus, Coconotus Anderson and Lanteri, also is described to accommodate three new species from Cocos Island, Costa Rica. These species, described herein are C. williamsi Anderson and Lanteri, C. kuscheli Anderson and Lanteri, and C. tuberculatus Anderson and Lanteri. Coconotus is placed within the tribe Entimini, with tentative affinities with the Lachnopus-Exophthalmus group of genera. No details are known of the natural history of any Coconotus species.
