Courtship and mating behavior of Cosmopolites sordidus Germar Coleoptera Curculionidae Comportamento de corte e acasalamento de Cosmopolites sordidus Germar Coleoptera Curculionidae

The mating behavior of Cosmopolites sordidus Germar was observed in individual couples and groups. Two different sequences of courtship were described: a complex one when the male tapped the abdomen, antenna and the head of the female before the copulation, and the simple courtship without tapping on the abdomen. When in a group of males and females, a post-copulatory behavior with mate guarding by the males was observed. This behavior prevents the copulation by others males for several minutes.
