Weevils? Yes, I know. Who would be interested in weevils? But, so many of them are just gorgeous! Since I found that very strange and interesting weevil a few days ago, I have been doing some research. Check out these weevils. (all photos were found on line. None were taken by me)
Eurhinus magnificus This one is found from Mexico to Panama!
Acorn Weevil – (Conotrachelus posticatus) They suck the insides of young acorns, and also lay their eggs in acorns. (many parts of the USA and Canada)
Eupholus magnificus from New Guinea
giraffe weevil from Madagascar
Diamond weevil Chrysolopus spectabilis (eastern Australia)
Polka Dotted Clown Weevil (Pachyrrhynchus orbifer) Phillipines
There are just a very few of the tens of thousands of types of weevils in the world. I think I should spend one of my next lives as an entomologist. I’ve always liked bugs but living here in Panama has showed me more of the huge diversity of the insect world.
