Hollyhock Weevil

I found it!
I can't believe I actually found the weevil that seems to suddenly appear and destroy the Hollyhocks growing a particular place! They are tough too. Nothing short of systemic insecticide kills them. I never thought it would actually be called Hollyhock Weevil.

I Love It
Thanks for contributing this terrific image of this intriguing creature.

you're welcome!
