Either oryzae or granarius. I am not sure this photo will allow anyone to tell. Anyway, I will try to get some more shots of them soon, as I have a jarful of infested pasta.

Was this ever confirmed as granarius? Or do you have some photos of that non-native? If so, it would be nice to have a page and to add it to the non-natives list.

No, it was never confirmed to either species.

Moving to genus.
Moving to genus page for now. Very nice shot, sorry 'bout the pasta:-)

Thanks Eric, I have got these in a 28 C growth chamber now, and have added a little liver powder. I am hoping the increased protein should make me a large crop of super weevils with which I can destroy the planet!

Just kidding. I do want to breed them up, as it might be fun to use some in the labs for my physiology class. If not that, then at least I will key them out and get some better photos.
