We provide first records for 108 weevils species sensu lato (Curculionoidea) to the fauna of Montenegro. During a field trip 203 weevil species were recorded and are listed here. The records of Archarius anatoliensis Voss, 1962 are the first ones from the Balkans and document a further spreading of this species towards Northwest. Echinodera bryneri spec. nov. is described and compared with the sympatrically occurring, morphologically similar species E. romanboroveci Stüben, 1998. The lectotypes of Sciaphobus paliuri Apfelbeck, 1908, and S. polydrosinus Apfelbeck, 1922 conserved in the Georg Frey collection are designated, and illustrated comments on their differentiation are provided. For Leiosoma komovicum Pedroni, 2018 habitat, images of both sexes, a description of the female genitalia, and the presumable host plants are presented.
