Curculionoidae “Weevil”…or I believe commonly known as ‘Botany Bay Weevil"?
Weevils belong to the largest species in any group of animals known in the world!! More then 4000 known in Australia…and over 60,000 world wide…Apparentley its impossible to ever hope to discover every weevil!!
They range in size from mocroscopic to 8cm and come in a variety of colours!! This one was ’cruising’ across the patio here at home…lumix ft2..rural nnsw,upper corindi,aussie..*-)
