Bowl Weevil

Photographed in a white bowl...

I think the first weevil I ever heard about was the infamous boll weevil, scourge of cotton crops everywhere.

However, this is not a ‘boll’ weevil, but a ‘bowl’ weevil…

🙄 apologies.

The largest weevil I have ever seen (about 16mm), this Lepyrus sp. was found feeding on the leaves of trembling aspen in Elk Island National Park, Alberta.

Thanks to BugGuide for the ID.
