First record of the family Belidae (Insecta, Coleoptera) in amber. New genus and species from the uppermost Albian amber of France

Abstract : Until now, fossil weevils of the family Belidae were unknown from fossil resin deposits. In this article, Gratshevbelus erici n. gen., n. sp. is described a from the Lower Cretaceous (uppermost Albian) amber deposits of southwestern France. Recent members of this family are present only in the southern hemisphere, therefore this new fi nding in northern deposits helps to better understand the fi rst stages of the radiation of this group during the Late Mesozoic.
