Bramanti A., Bramanti A., Rumane - Bārbale A. 2020. Five new species of the genus Polycatus Heller, 1912 (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Polycatini) from the Mindanao Island (Philippines), and new examples of mimicry among weevil genera. Baltic J. Coleopterol., 20(1): 61 - 80.

Five new species of the genus Polycatus Heller, 1912 (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Entiminae: Eupholini) from the Mindanao Island (Philippines) are described and illustrated: P. bramanti Rukmane sp. nov., P. jaegeri Bramanti & Bramanti sp. nov., P. mimicus Bramanti, Bramanti & Rukmane sp. nov., P. vivesi Bramanti & Bramanti sp. nov. and P. waoensis Bramanti & Bramanti sp. nov.. The new synonymy Polycatus aurofasciatus Heller, Heller, 1912 (= P. aurofasciatus var. dilatisignatus Heller, 1929, syn. nov.) is established. A key for species of the aurofasciatus group of Mindanao and Basilan islands is proposed. Additionally to already report mimetic pairs, new examples of mimicry between Polycatus, Pachyrynchus Germar, 1824, Metapocyrtus Heller, 1912 and Calidiopsis Heller, 1913 are included. Distribution maps, as well as new faunistic records are provided.

KeyWords : Coleoptera, Curculionidae, Polycatus, fauna, new species, taxonomy, mimetic pairs, Mindanao, Philippines.
