Leitãne A. L., Balalaikins M., Valainis U. 2022. New records of the genus Smicronyx Schönherr, 1843 (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) in the Latvia. Baltic J. Coleopterol., 22(2): 473-478.
Weevils of the genus Smicronyx Schönherr, 1843 are a relatively widespread taxonomic group in the Western Palaearctic. Despite its widespread distribution, faunistic data on it are scarce, and there are even entire regions with no current faunistic data. Here, we report on the first records of the genus from Latvia. Two species have been recorded in Latvia for the first time: Smicronyx jungermanniae Reich, 1797 and Smicronyx coecus Reich, 1797. Faunistic data on this taxonomic group in the Baltic region are scarce. The aim of this article is to raise knowledge of this taxon in the hope that it will lead to new discoveries elsewhere.
KeyWords : Smicronychini, dodder weevils, Cuscuta, new faunistic records.
