New information about the cypress weevil, eudociminus mannerheimii (Boheman, 1836) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Molytinae): Redescription, range expansion, new host records, and report as a possible causative agent of tree mortality

The cypress weevil, Eudociminus mannerheimii (Boheman, 1836), is reported from northwestern Arkansas (new state record). The suspected host in this area is eastern red cedar (Juniperus virginiana L.), which represents a new host record. Additional new host records from arborvitae (Thuja L.) in North Carolina are reported. A brief redescription of the adult that expands upon the original description and photographs are included. Although cypress weevils are not generally considered pestiferous, a case of landscape trees likely killed by this species is included.
