Abstract

Eleven neotropical Anthonomini are assigned to the Anthonomus flavirostris group. Hosts of most of the species are unknown, but three are known to be associated with plants in the family Malpighiaceae. Characters diagnostic of the group and of each of the species assigned to the group are described and some of them are illustrated. A key to the species is presented. Nine new species, A. ambiguus (Brazil), A. ancepitis (Brazil), A. comparabilis (Brazil), A. globosus (México), A. duplus (Argentina), A. geminus (Brazil), A. tremendus (Venezuela), A. marialionzae (Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Venezuela) and A. yarae (Dominica, Venezuela) are described. Lecto-types are designated for A. flavirostris Champion and A. krugii Fischer. Anthonomus dentipennis Chevrolat and A. krugii Fischer are placed in synonymy with A. verrucosus Suffrian. Relationships of the A. flavirostris group to other New World anthonomines associated with plants in the family Malpighiaceae, as well as with the Asiatic A. nodulosus (Marshall), the North American A. quadrigibbus Say, and the Neotropical genus Atractomerus Duponchel and Chevrolat, are discussed.
