Mini-Weevil favorited by AntónioGinjaGinja San Cristóbal, Chiapas, Mexico 16 minutes ago

This is the tiniest weevil I've seen yet, at only 2 mm, not even discernible as a weevil without magnification. It is black-brown and covered in kinky little hairs arranged in rows down the elytra (best seen in the third picture). The antennae and tarsi are orange-brown. It plays dead for long periods. Family Curculionidae, subfamily Cryptorhynchinae (Hidden Snout Weevils), subtribe Tylodina. Boris Büche writes "These are Acalles (genus) type weevils which are typical litter weevils, flightless and with cryptic colouration. The larvae develop in twigs and small branches in the forest litter."

Hello Tee and Welcome to the Project Noah community!
We hope you like the website as much as we do. There are many aspects to the site and community. The best way to get started is to read the FAQs at http://www.projectnoah.org/faq where you can find all the tips, advice and "rules" of Project Noah. You, like the rest of the community, will be able to suggest IDs for species that you know (but that have not been identified), and make useful or encouraging comments on other users' spottings (and they on yours).
There are also "missions" you can join and add spottings to. See http://www.projectnoah.org/missions . A mission you should join is the https://www.projectnoah.org/missions/219... to chose the "best wildlife photo of 2019",only the spottings added to that mission are eligible.Note that most missions are "local". Be sure not to add a spotting to a mission that was outside of mission boundaries or theme :) Each mission has a map you may consult showing its range. We also maintain a blog archive http://blog.projectnoah.org/ where we have posted previous articles from specialists from different geographical areas and categories of spottings, as well as wildlife "adventures".
So enjoy yourself, share, communicate, learn. See you around :)

2019 National Moth Week! July 20-28



Project Noah partners with National Moth Week each year to celebrate the beauty and life cycles of moths.



Moths play a key role in ecosystems as pollinators and as a food source for nocturnal insectivores like owls, birds and bats. Our Moths of the World Mission celebrates the diversity and ecological importance of moths. Join a global citizen science project to help identify all moths from July 20-28!
