Sipalinus is a genus of beetles belonging to the family Curculionidae.

Sipalinus is composed of seven species, five from Africa and two from Eurasia and Australasia. These species are quite large (up to 28 mm.) and robust, the basic colour is brownish, the surface is crusty looking, often heavily tuberculate and elytra are usually mottled with whitish and dark brown. Some species are wood bores, and may occasionally be found in wood used for crates or structural timbers.[1]
