Big Weevil - Naupactus leucoloma

Big Weevil - Naupactus leucoloma
Great Falls Park, Montgomery County, Maryland, USA
August 20, 2009
This was a sizable weevil that I nearly passed by because I thought it was just a masked chafer - that was the size it was. It was hanging out next to the C&O Canal on this plastic orange fencing they have up right now.


Thanks for putting these to species!
More data for the Maryland Biodiversity Project. :)

I hope you're well!


Looks like Naupactus sp.

Oh yes -
That one has the right pale lines and large-ish size. Thanks!

You're welcome!
I also took one a couple of days ago.
