Morronia brevirostris, a new genus and species of Entimini (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Entiminae) from Islas Malvinas PAULA POSADAS and FEDERICO C. OCAMPO A new genus of entimine weevils, Morronia gen. n., is described as endemic to the Islas Malvinas (Falkland Islands). It is distinguished from the other genera of Entimini by the fol- lowing combination of characters: frons without fovea; rostrum lacking carinae, as long as wide; and foretibia with external margin straight and a spatula-like projection. Diagnoses, descriptions and illustrations of the new genus and its only species, M. brevirostris sp. n., are given. We also present a check-list of the Curculionidae recorded from the Islas Malvinas. It contains 22 species in 13 genera and 3 subfamilies. Also included is a key to the species of the Entiminae that inhabit the archipelago. P.
