Thanks Boris.
That is really interesting.
I tend to use Project Noah to sort unknown things long before my photo will reach Flickr. I have just had a fantastic trip to Peru and will have several for Project Noah when I get sorted - they will not reach Flickr for at least a year.

Yes, its me :-)

And these weevils really make a difference - they do brood-care, rare in beetles:

Thanks Boris?
I have never seen a weevil like that but clearly that family do look different to the weevils I see generally.
