Atrichonotus taeniatulus (Berg), a S.American introduction
Charles O'Brien det.

[sorry to have mislead you, Lynette; turned out a nice add'n to the guide! =v=]

Moved from White-fringed Weevils.

is this species Parthenogenetic as well?

Charles O'Brien answers your question:
"All Atrichonotus are parthenogenetic. The White-fringed Weevils in North America are all parthenogenetic but males are common in many South American populations of several of the same introduced species. Ophryastes sordidus has bisexual and parthenogenetic populations and Lissorhoptrus oryzophilus [the rice water weevil] has US bisexual populations in most of its range, but CA has parthenogenetic populations only and these have spread to Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and mainland China."

very interesting
Thank you for the info, and please thank Charles as well.
