Abstract: The study presents information about the taxonomy, natural history, and distribution of orchid weevils (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) in Canada. Native are Stethobaris ovata (LeConte, 1869) (= S. congermana Casey, 1892 restored synonymy; = S. convergens Casey, 1920 new synonymy), S. incompta Casey, 1892 (= S. commixta Blatchley, 1916 new synonymy), and S. sacajaweae Prena, new species, with all of them also being present in the adjacent temperate zone of the United States of America. Orchidophilus aterrimus (Waterhouse, 1874) and S. laevimargo (Champion, 1916) have been found on imported orchid cultivars but did not become established in natural habitats.
