DE LA CRUZ PEREZ, Aracely et al. Bruchids (Coleoptera: Bruchidae) of the state of Tabasco, Mexico. Acta Zool. Mex [online]. 2013, vol.29, n.1, pp.01-95. ISSN 2448-8445.

In order to determine the species diversity of the Bruchidae of the state of Tabasco, collections were made via (1) dry seeds samples, and (2) direct hand collections. A total of 3578 speci-mens in 14 genera and 49 species were recorded of which 37 species are new for Tabasco. Of the 35 host plants collected, 9 were recorded as new host associations. A diagnostic key to bruchid species of Tabasco is presented.

Keywords : Weevils; taxonomy; dichotomic key; diversity; diagnostic key for bruchids.
