Plant Parasites of Europe

leafminers, galls and fungi

Otiorhynchus

The larvae of this species-rich genus generally live broadly polyphagous at the roots of plant. Most are not discussed here.

Otiorhynchus armatus adult feeding

The adult beetles use to eat chunks out of the leaf margin, in this case O. armatus Boheman, 1843 on ivy (from Forbicioni, Abbazzi, Bellò ao, 2019a)
