sp. nov. (Weldborough Forest Weevil) is a large ground-dwelling beetle, known only from a single site southeast of Weldborough in northeast Tasmania. It probably occurs in mixed forest (eucalypt forest with a rainforest understorey). Lack of knowledge of the precise site of the only known population and on the biology of the species limits the options to manage the species effectively. The main threats have probably been clearing of habitat for agriculture and plantation development.
