Cute Little Beetle (maybe a weevil?) - Plectrura spinicauda

March 3, 2010
Size: very small
He is extremely strong, if he clings to anything it is hard to get him off. He doesn't move much, and when he does move he is very slow.

Oh wow!
I just posted one that is very similar. Check out Plectrura spinicauda. I am NOT an authority on these, so please wait to see what the experts say. They're really neat, aren't they?! :)

 
Thanks so much :)
Yes, something about him was very endearing. You take excellent pictures, by the way.

 
Thanks!
You should see some of the other photographers on this site! They make my photos look like child's play! Welcome to Bug Guide, by the way. You'll love it! :)

 
Mandy's right, this is P. spinicauda
