The authors complete and modify results published in 2003 on trophic relationships between seed-beetles of the French fauna and their larval host plants. New data are given for France, Italy and Greece. Forty-four new host plants were identified, which constitutes for several beetle species the very first biological data available. The diet of 86% of the seed-beetles in the three countries is now more or less precisely known. The previously expressed hypothesis, according to which any given beetle species will feed on a single plant species, genus or tribe, is confirmed in most cases.
