Foot of the Mule Mts, Cochise County, Arizona, USA
August 4, 2012
These weevils were on several plants with very soft sunflower like leaves. The tips of the plants were broken (chewed through?)but still attached. One weevil was hiding under each broken, wilting twig.

Moved from Haplorhynchites.

Haplorhynchites pseudomexicanus Hamilton This weevil chews through the petiole of the flower below the flower head and leaves it nodding and still attached. Then it lays eggs in the flower head in which the larvae develop.The nodding heads are good evidence of the weevils presence.
