Abstract

A new subgenus Podorhynchus subgen. n. (type species Otiorhynchus cylindricus STIERLIN, 1877) of the genus Otiorhynchus, until now confused with Podonebistus REITTER, 1912, is described. Otiorhynchus (Podonebistus) trichopterus sp. n. from Crete, Otiorhynchus granicus sp. n. from Turkey and O. idhaeus sp. n. from Crete (both species in the subgenus Choilisanus REITTER, 1912) are described. Otiorhynchus cylindricus STIERLIN, 1877, O. fortiscapus ARNOLDI, 1972, O. glolae ARNOLDI, 1972, O. korotyaevi DAVIDIAN & GÜLTEKIN, 2006, and O. ritsae ARNOLDI, 1972, all currently placed in the subgenus Podonebistus are transferred to the newly erected subgenus Podorhynchus
