Abstract: Twenty-one species of endemic weevils are found on the islands of the Strait of Sicily, including the Egadi Islands. These weevils are classified under the Superfamily Curculionoidea, 18 of which fall under the Family Curculionidae whereas the remaining species belong to the Family Raymondiomymidae. Of these, two species namely Echinodera sp. n. (?) near capbonensis and Amaurorhinus sp. near paganettii both from Malta are still undescribed. All 21 species are flightless and most likely polyphagous.
