JONES, Robert W.  and  LUNA-COZAR, Jesús. Lista de las especies de Curculionoidea (Insecta: Coleoptera) del estado de Querétaro, México. Acta Zool. Mex [online]. 2007, vol.23, n.3, pp.59-77. ISSN 2448-8445.

A total of 141 species of the superfamily Curculionoidea (excluding Scolytinae y Platypodinae) were identified from the state of Queretaro, Mexico. The number of species per family were: Curculionidae (89), Apionidae (29), Dryophthoridae (11), Rhynchitidae (6), Attelabidae (5), y Erirhinidae (1). The genera with the greatest diversity of species were Trichapion (14), Pandeleteius (11), Anthonomus (11), Sibinia (9), and both Rhyssomatus y Ophryastes with five species. The biogeographic distributions indicated that the majority of the species were restricted to "Mega-Mexico 3" sensu Rzedowski ; a region from the north of Nicaragua to the southwestern United States. The similarities of the present list of species with that of previous reports from the state of Guanajuato and El Cielo, Tamauliapas were low (Jaccard's Index =0.159 y 0.090, respectively). These comparisons, together with a calculation of the expected number of species of Curculiondea of the state, (using the proportion of total number of identified species of plants of Mexico with the respective total of Curculionidea), indicated that the present list represents less than one half of the total number of species for the state.

Keywords : Coleoptera; Curculionoidea; Mexico; biodiversity; systematics.
