Plant Parasites of Europe

leafminers, galls and fungi



Adult weevils mostly have a more or less elongated head. The, in most families elbowed, antennae are inserted halfway, or near the end of the ‘snout’. Weevils and their larvae are, with a very few exceptions, strictly phytophagous.
The larvae are comma-like grubs with soft, white, segments, the first seven or
eight transversely divided into two to four dorsal folds; the legs are absent; head hypognathous (directed downwards) with strongly reduced antennae.
