Abstract
  • The following new genus and seven new species of Cossonine weevils (Curculionidae: Cossoninae) are described from Dominican amber: Acamptus exilipes Poinar and Legalov, n. sp.,(similar to A. rigidus), Caulophilus camptus Poinar and Legalov, n. sp., (similar to C. bennetti), Caulophilus elongatus Poinar and Legalov, n. sp., (similar to C. swensoni) Caulophilus ruidipunctus Poinar and Legalov, n. sp., Dryotribus pedanus Poinar and Legalov, n. sp., (similar to D. amplioculus) Ogygius obrieni Poinar and Legalov, n. gen., n. sp., (similar to the genus Apotrepus) and Stenotrupis pumilis Poinar and Legalov, n. sp. (similar to S. breviscapus). A key to the Dominican amber species of the genus Caulophilus is provided. Based on the extant weevil fauna, it appears that the Hispaniolan Cossonine were more diverse in the Tertiary than at present.
