Coffee Bean Weevil

Araecerus fasciculatus

Description:

Coleoptera; Anthribidae; Araecerus; A. fasciculatus (De Geer, 1775). "Araecerus fasciculatus, the coffee bean weevil, is a species of beetle belonging to the family Anthribidae. Despite its name, it affects a wide range of stored products and some field crops. Through trade it has become cosmopolitan in its distribution." Wikipedia.

Habitat:

Spotted on String Beans (Vigna unguiculata) being grown, alongside other vegetables, in a rice field, in between rice crops

Notes:

All of the photos above show females (because of the short antennae). I did not get any pictures of males.
