A new tribe of Nemonychidae is proposed based on inclusions in Baltic amber: Kuschelomacerini trib.n., for Kuschelomacer kerneggeri gen. & sp.n. It can be attributed to the subfamily Cimberidinae but lacks some of the derived characters of the two extant tribes of this subfamily. The excellent preservation allows providing the most detailed description of a fossil Nemonychid weevil to date. Presumably, the species developed on Pinaceae common in the amber forests. Thus, the association of extant Cimberidinae with Pinaceae dates back at least until the Eocene.
