Eupholus Schoenherri–E. Magnificus - Complex
Eupholus is a genus of beetle in the family Curculionidae. The genus includes some of the most colourful of the weevils. The colour may serve as a warning to predators that they are distasteful. Most species of Eupholus feed upon yam leaves, some of which are toxic to other animals.
The species occur in New Guinea and adjacent islands.
