Weevil on milkweed flower - Rhyssomatus palmacollis
Medford, (~25 miles east of Philadelphia, PA) Burlington County, New Jersey, USA
May 27, 2009
Size: 6.3mm
Found this weevil hinding in an unopened Milkweed flower/bud. It fell out of the flower and played dead very well all through the photo shoot, so well that I thought it might actually be dead (but it wasn't) Suggestions welcome :)
