Groehnius, a new genus of Eugnomini (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) from Eocene Baltic amber

Bukejs, Andris; Legalov, Andrei A.

A new weevil, Groehnius electrum Bukejs and Legalov, gen. et sp. nov. (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Curculioninae), is described from Eocene Baltic amber. This new genus is similar to the genus Archaeoeugnomus Legalov, 2016 from Baltic amber but differs in the femora without ventral teeth, and the scape not reaching the anterior margin of the eye. It is the second record of the tribe Eugnomini in the Eocene.
