Tonesiina

Notesiaspis rubiginosa, photographed by Juan E. Barriga-Tuñón.


Belongs within: Baridinae.

The Tonesiina are a pantropical group of weevils, distinguished by their non-canaliculate and usually very wide prosternum.

Characters (from Lacordaire 1866, as "Lytériides"): Prothorax with low median lobe at base; prosternum not canaliculate, almost always very wide between anterior coxae, without postcoxal process. Scutellum visible, small, usually quadrangular.
