1 December 2002 OLD TRAPS FOR NEW WEEVILS: NEW RECORDS FOR CURCULIONIDS (COLEOPTERA: CURCULIONIDAE), BRENTIDS (COLEOPTERA: BRENTIDAE) AND ANTHRIBIDS (COLEOPTERA: ANTHRIBIDAE) FROM JEFFERSON CO., FLORIDA

Abstract

Trapping studies using three different types of traps placed in several wild and cultivated habitats in North Florida (Jefferson Co.) produced 97 different species of adult weevils in the family Curculionidae and the closely related primitive families Anthribidae, Brentidae and Ithyceridae. Sixty-one of 97 species trapped have not been reported previously from Jefferson Co. Furthermore, seven species of Curculionidae are first records for the state, with four of these being important agricultural pests (Hypera meles, H. nigrirostris, H. punctata and Sitona lineatus). In addition, some weevils taken in our traps represent undescribed species of Apteromechus, Cercopeus and Conotrachelus. Herein we include: (1) an alphabetical listing of species collected in these traps, (2) a description and illustration of the traps used, and (3) months of the year and generalized habitats where traps were placed and specimens were collected. Information on host associations is provided for many species.
