Curculionoidea, weevils, fauna, new findings, Siberia


The family Curculionidae is one of the diverse groups of Coleoptera. Data on the fauna of Western Siberia were summarized in the review (Legalov 2010) and are presented in regional lists (Krivets 1997; Legalov and Opanassenko 2000; Krivets and Legalov 2002; Bukhkalo et al. 2011; Filimonov 2012). New materials are collected every year. There are new records. This work provides data on the distribution of three species. The first record in the east of Western Siberia for cannabis pest Cardipennis rubripes (Hustache, 1916) is presented. The genus Catapionus Schoenherr, 1842 is an Asian mountain genus (Alonso-Zarazaga and Lyal 1999), but one species lives to the southeast of the West Siberian Plain. Dorytomus peneckei Zumpt, 1933 is distributed in Siberia and the Far East. For these species, the most western records are given.

Material and methods

Specimens of new records are kept in CSRN – the private collection of S.V. Reshetnikov (Novosibirsk), and additional material in the Institute of Systematics and Ecology of Animals of the Siberian Branch, Russian Academy of Sciences (Novosibirsk) and Zoological Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences (Saint-Petersburg).

The photographs were taken with a camera Fujifilm X-T10.

The systematics of studied taxa are from the Legalov’s works (Legalov 2018, 2020a, 2020b).

This beetle was collected from very rotten aspen wood lying on the ground. The species develops on Populus tremulae L. (Egorov et al. 1996).


Dorytomus peneckei is North Asian species known from South Siberia, Mongolia, Northeast China and the Russian Far East (Fig. 2). This is the westernmost record.

The species develops on Cannabis sativa L. (Shilenkov and Tolstonogova 2006).


This species was known from South Siberia, North Mongolia and the south of Primorskii Krai (Fig. 3). It was also collected in the Chelyabinsk Oblast (Filimonov 2012). This is the first record from Novosibirsk Oblast.
