Mission Statement

This is a website for weevil taxonomists and others interested in the beetle superfamily Curculionoidea, with the aim of facilitating cooperation and information-sharing worldwide. It will enable weevil specialists to share information online and together develop a community resource with data on weevil hosts, morphology, systematics, taxonomic characters, literature and other areas of mutual interest.
The amount of information available is now vastly outstripping our ability to keep track of it. For several years weevil taxonomists have realised they need a web resource where they can discuss issues and share information, for example on taxonomic character states, to minimise confusion in the literature and enable acceleration of research. This site grew from that need.
