A new fungus weevil, Glaesotropis (Electranthribus) rohdendorfi sp. nov. (Coleoptera: Anthribidae), is describedfrom Priabonian Rovno amber. It is similar to G. (E.) zherikhini (Legalov, 2013a) butdiffers in the transverse carina extending to the scutellum, shorterantennomere 2, wider antennal club, more convex eyes, and larger body size.It is the first record of the subgenus Electranthribus Legalov, 2013a from Rovno amber, thefirst named beetle from the Olevsk amber locality, and the sixth amberspecies reported from the Zhytomyr region. An aggregation of glaesacaridmites Glaesacarus rhombeus (Koch and Berendt, 1854) as a syninclusion with the fungus weevil isreported for the first time (41 specimens); the possibility of theglaesacarids feeding on fungi is discussed.
