I find them here eating Lilac leaves and they blend into the gray colored bark.

I think these weevils are fascinating. I find them here in the garden.

We used to call these kockamookas when kids. They are plentiful amongst the ti-tree at Balnarring and Somers beaches for example. I always remember them around the sallow wattle.
