This epithet is a combination of the Latin prefix pro- (before) and the name of Trigonopterus curtus (Voss). Presumably, this species represents an early offshoot from the Trigonopterus curtus-species-group. A variable adjective.
Trigonopterus procurtus Riedel, sp. n. was coded as “Trigonopterus sp. 420”.
