The tribe Rhynchophorini is the largest member of the true weevil subfamily Dryophthorinae. Alonso-Zarazaga and Lyal (1999) treated it as a distinct subfamily, Rhynchophorinae (in the family Dryophthoridae).[1] Weevils of this tribe have the pygidium (VII abdominal tergite) not covered by the elytra.

This tribe includes the largest weevils of the subfamily, such as palm weevils.
