Description of a new species of the genus Echinodera and supplement to the weevil fauna of Kefalonia Island
The revision of specimens which had been attributed to Echinodera cf. brisouti (Reitter, 1885) results here in the description of E. stuebeni spec. nov. The morphologically similar species Echinodera peneckei Stüben, 1998 stat. nov. is promoted to species rank, from a subspecies of E. brisouti. These taxonomic changes are supported by both, the comparison of the DNA barcodes of COI, and the investigation of morphological characters. The barcode of Echinodera peneckei is provided for the first time. In a first supplement to the faunistic list of the Curculionoidea of Kefalonia,
seven further species are recorded here.
