Coleoptera Curculionidae Entiminae

The Insects and Arachnids of Canada Series, Part 25, focuses on a group of Canadian and Alaskan weevils in the subfamily Entiminae. Several species of this broad-nosed weevil subfamily are detrimental to agriculture and forestry. This handbook provides information about 49 genera and 123 species. It includes a key to the subfamilies of the Canadian Curculionidae, a key to the genera of Entiminae, and keys to the species in each genus, where required. The volume describes each species, with observations on weevil biology and host plants, and provides maps illustrating species distribution.
