Entimini is a Neotropical weevil tribe in the subfamily Entiminae that includes 46 described species.[1]

Most members of the tribe can be recognized by their relatively large and robust bodies. A key to identify the genera of Entimini can be found in Vanin & Gaiger.[2] The Central American species are treated by Sharp & Champion,[3]


The tribe ranges from Mexico to Argentina, with no representatives in the Caribbean islands.[4] All genera are mainly represented in Brazil.[5]
