Title: A Remarkable New Species Of Flesh-fly Mimicking Weevil (coleoptera: Curculionidae: Conoderinae) From Southeastern Brazil
Author: Vanin S.A.
Guerra T.J.
Abstract: Timorus sarcophagoides, new species (type-locality: Brazil, Minas Gerais, Santana do Riacho - Serra do Cipó, 43o35'W 19o17'S, 1200-1300m ASL), is described and illustrated. The new species can be distinguished mainly from the other species of the genus by the sexual dimorphism of the male rostrum armed with a hooked tubercle at the base of the dorsal carina, while the tubercle is absent in the female and the corresponding region of the carina is only tumid. The new species has a striking pattern of coloration and behavior that mimics flesh-flies in the family Sarcophagidae. Observations on the natural history of the new species are reported and discussed. Copyright © 2012 · Magnolia Press.
