Short summary
New fungus weevils, Eduardoxenus unicus gen. et sp. nov. is described from late Eocene Rovno amber (Klesov, Rovno region). This fossil fungus weevil is the oldest finding of the tribe Valenfriesiini in fossil state and the first record of the Choraginae from the Eocene ambers. The new genus differs from the genera Cyptoxenus, Valenfriesia and Neoxenus. Palaeogeographical and palaeoclimatological importance of finding Valenfriesiini in Rovno amber is discussed.
