Taxonomy

Beaverium Hulcr and Cognato, 2009: 25.

Diagnosis

Large and robust species, 4.1−5.6 mm long, 2.2−2.55 times as long as wide. Beaverium can be distinguished by the elytral declivity distinctly flattened and posterolaterally broadened; posterolateral declivital costa terminating at interstriae 5; pronotal disc punctatepronotum anterior margin with continuously elevated carinascutellum flat, flush with elytramycangial tufts absent,;and procoxae contiguous.

May be confused with

Ambrosiodmus, Fortiborus, and Immanus

Distribution

throughout mostly tropical regions of Asia, Australasia, and Oceania

Gallery system

This appears to have been described only in B. insulindicus (Eggers), a species not found in the study region. Based on observations in Fiji, Roberts (1977) notes a short radial gallery, penetrating 2–4 cm, with several longitudinal galleries parallel to the stem axis, all in the same plane, and without enlarged brood chambers.
