The Cyclominae are a group of weevils with a relatively short snout, lacking a deciduous process or scars on the mandibles, and well-developed postocular lobes (Anderson 2002). Subgroups include the Amycterini, an Australian assemblage of flightless, often grotesque weevils with seven-segmented antennal funicles and heavily sclerotised, coarsely sculpted maxillae that fill most of the oral cavity (Zimmerman 1993). The Somatodini are southern African weevils with six-segmented funicles and the basal tarsomeres uniformly spongeous below (Zimmerman 1993).
