Even though the Curculionidae family is one of the largest with almost 23,500 described species, split in 2,200 genera, making it the largest weevil sub-family known.

These enigmatic creatures,  are surprisingly hard to find on the forest floor as they rummage for food, feeding mainly on plants.   The larvae and imago of this family are known to particularly like feeding on flowers, acorns and other nuts.

Weevils are given away by their distinct features such as shape, colour and their “geniculate antennae”,  which contain their neuronal taste cells.

I could not find a name for this particular individual so took photos and left it to its meal.
