The Electronic Catalogue of Weevil Names
is a project in progress.
Ultimately it will contain all family, genus and
species-group names in the Curculionoidea, a group of beetles with some 60,000
described species which includes many important insects, including the bark
beetles (Scolytinae) and powder-post beetles (Platypodinae).
Currently the database contains some 100.000
names, including all generic and family-group names, in their current taxonomic
position, and based on Alonso-Zarazaga & Lyal's (1999, 2002) catalogue of
weevil family and genus names. Species-group names are being added, but
are not yet all present nor checked against original publication or current
