The identities of seven weevil species described by Linnaeus are discussed and lectotypes designated for six of them, viz. Curculio craccae, C. frumentarius, C. algirus, C. cloropus, C. ater, and C. trifolii. A Iectotype is also designated for Curculio sanguineus De Geer. Curculio frumentarius L. is shown to be a senior objective synonym of C. [Apion] sanguineus De Geer. The next available name for A. frumentarium auctt., non (L.), is A. haematodes Kirby (SP. REV.). A. rubiginosum Grill is confirmed as the valid name for A. sanguineum auctt., non (De Geer). Curculio algirus L. is transferred from Lixus to Lixomorphus and becomes a senior synonym of Lixomorphus barbarus (Olivier) and L. ocularis (F.) (SYNN. N). The next available name for Lixus algirus auctt., non (L.), is L. angustatus (F.)(SP. REV.) and that for Curculio (BrachycerusJ algirus F., nec L., is B. muricatus Olivier (SP. REV.). The traditional interpretation of Curculio [Rhynchaenus]fagi L. is confirmed. Curculio cloropus L. is shown to be a senior synonym of Phyllobius viridicollis (F.) (SYN. N.) and not of Rhyncolus ater (L.), as commonly supposed. Curculio ater L. is confirmed as type species of Rhyncolus Germar.
