An annotated checklist of the Curculionoidea (Coleoptera) of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg is presented, with the exception of the representatives of the subfamilies Scolytinae and Platypodinae, for which reliable and comprehensive data are not yet available. 524 species of the weevil families Nemonychidae, Anthribidae, Apionidae, Nanophyidae, Rhynchitidae, Attelabidae, Dryophthoridae, Erirhinidae and Curculionidae were recorded in Luxembourg since 1900. The data mainly come from (a) the collections of the National Natural History Museum of Luxembourg (some of the curculionoid data were a by-product of the survey of the Homoptera fauna of Luxembourg carried out by the Museum from 2001 to 2004); (b) the literature, and (c) the sampling activity of the present author since 1995. With 380 species recorded in total, the subfamilies Apioninae (93), Ceutorhynchinae (85), Curculioninae (115) and Entiminae (87) are the most specious. The list comprises 32 species that have not been recorded during the last 70 years.
