Cubicorhynchus is an Australian genus of weevils in which the head is typically separated from the rostrum by a conspicuous transverse sulcus between the anterior margins of the supraocular horns, the eyes are ovoid and the antennal scapes do not extend much beyond the caudal margins of the eyes. They are typically associated with grasses, with larvae feeding on the stems (Zimmerman 1993).
