Cotasteromorphus chujoi gen. et. sp. nov. is described from the moss forests of the Cameron Highlands, Pahang, Malaysia. The genus belongs to the subtribe Cotasteromimina of the tribe Pissodini, and is similar to Cotasteromimus CHUJO et VOSS, 1960 described from Japan. Weevils are commonly found on the shrubs by beating at the type localities, and interestingly the sexes are rather biased to female (male: female= 1:13).
