Abstract

The species of Bruchidae associated with seeds of Pavonia Cav. (Malvaceae) are treated here, including Acanthoscelides bellamyi Romero, new species, which feeds on seeds of Pavonia chlorantha (Kunth) Fryxell. Notes are provided for Acanthoscelides elevatus (Sharp), Acanthoscelides machiques Johnson, and Acanthoscelides pavoniestes Johnson. A key is included to aid in identifying the species of Bruchidae associated with the genus Pavonia.
