DESCRIPTION
This comprehensive study treats the primitive subfamilies Myrmacicelinae and Rhadinocybinae at the generic level. The study was based on the material of over 3600 specimens. There are given diagnoses, detailed descriptions, and illustrations for each genus. Keys to the subfamilies and supertribes of Australo-Pacyfic Apionidae and to the genera of Rhadinocybinae are given.
AUTHOR:
Marek Wanat Born in 1958 in Łódź, where he studied at the Faculty of Biology and Earth Sciences, Łódź University, and gained his M. Sc. for a dissertation on the weevil fauna of his home city. In 1984 he took the position of professor's assistant/curator of insect collections at the Museum of Natural History, Wrocław University, where he got Ph.D. in 1993 for his systematic study on the apionid tribe Ceratapiini (finally published in 1995), and where he works today.
The author's passion for nature and entomology developed already at the begining of highschool and soon beetles, a and in particular weevils, became his favourite group. Apart from his devotedly pursued field studies on weevils, which brought discoveries of several species new to the fauna of Poland, accumulation of huge beetle collection, and great amount of faunistic and biological information, sice 1984 his research has been focused on the evolution and systematics of apionid weevils. Over a dozen years of completing literature, studying hundreds of types, and examining hundreds thousands of specimens, collected himself or provided by museums and coleopterists from all over the world, have made him well acquainted with these inconspicuous (but beautiful) beaked creatures. This book is an attempt of finding for them a proper place in weevil evolution and classification.
