Leaf-rolling Weevil

Paracycnotrachelus sp.


Brownish red colour, peanut-shaped body, long neck, sits upright feeling the surrounding air movement. Quickly hides behind the leaf at a smallest disturbace. Body length: 7mm.


Grassy land, many small streams flowing nearby, lots of forests and agricultural plots around. Altitude: 6,5000ft.


In the early morning of the day-two of the camp I went around with my 50D fitted with 100mm/2.8L IS USM Macro and managed to spot some surprises. This one was among them!
