Myosides seriehispidus Roelofs, a small cryptic broadnosed weevil from Japan, is reported as established in the eastern U.S. since at least 1973. This nocturnal weevil has been collected most often from leaf litter using berleses. The genus and species are redescribed and placement in Kissinger's key to genera of North American weevils is indicated. Dorsal and lateral habitus photographs of this species are included.
