In the framework of the 'Digital Weevil Determination' project a digital and interactive determination work for the difficult genera Acalyptus, Ellescus, Dorytomus (Curculioninae: Acalyptini & Ellescini) is presented to you now for the first time as a pictorial key in German and English language. 31 species of the West Palaearctic region (the eastern delimitation is orientated approximately along the eastern borderlines of the EEC members) were taken into account. Each information in the key is firstly given as a pictorial information and is also - more additionally - 'translated' into text. By this, we follow a basic principle of modern entomological and taxonomical work: To see by light-optical microscope exactly that, what the digital picture is keeping ready on the screen! Information on the biology for each species are completing this work.
