Abstract

Palaeocryptorhynchus burmanus gen. et sp. nov. (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Cryptorhynchinae) is described from Cretaceous Burmese amber. The fossil is notable for its unique femora interlocking mechanism consisting of a flange on the basal third of the profemur that inserts into a groove along the basal portion of the mesofemur and the elongate, spatulate rostrum.
