Madarina

Solaria curtula on flowers of Davilla kunthii, photographed by Mary W. Farmer.


Belongs within: Baridinae.

The Madarina is a group of weevils distinguished primarily by the distinctive morphology of the prosternum. They are usually elliptical or rhomboidal in overall shape, and often brightly coloured.

Characters (from Lacordaire 1866, as 'Madarides vrais' in part): Pronotum with median lobe partially covering scutellum; scutellum a curvilinear triangle, anteriorly concave; prosternum not grooved, more or less wide between anterior coxae, with postcoxal projection covering entire mesosternum.
