Spotting

Description:

Two unknown insect species interacting, for species interaction mission. One appears to be a weevil and the other a miscellaneous tiny brown beetle. Brown beetle chases weevil away from group of browns, then weevils meander around single browns. Both about 1mm in length.

Habitat:

Temperate eastern Australian gardens.

Notes:

Both species have been "spotted" separately, but I thought I'd add this due to a mission of species interaction.. Went looking for the culprit of leaf damage, don't think I found it, but found other cool things. I like weevils and their big noses - as a nerd child I knew them as 'gonzo beetles' :)
