Rukmane-Bārbale A., Bramanti A., Bramanti A. 2020. A new genus of the tribe Polycatini Marshal, 1956 (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Entiminae) from the Philippines. Baltic J. Coleopterol., 20(1): 87 - 94.

A new entimine weevils genus and species from Palawan Island of the Philippines, Evrostopolycatus palawanensis gen. nov. et sp. n (Polycatini), is described and illustrated. The new genus is similar to the genus Polycatus Heller, 1912, but differs by less enclosed tibial corbel, antennal club with three more or less equal segments, wider mesosternum, more convex mesepimeron and the shape of the antennal scrobe, reaching outer margin of the eye along midline. This new taxon is a new example of the mimetic relationship with Expachyrhynchus palawanensis Rukmane, 2019.
