Polydrusus sp.?

Hello,

 

I found this small Curculionidae, light green and cyan (azure), I don't know this order, around the web I found a similar one: Polydrusus sericeus.

Maybe at least the genus is correct ...

Thanks for the help.

Marcello

    Hi Marcello,

     

    Another beautiful photo!

     

    These metallic green-blue weevils are difficult. Your suggestion might be right, but there are others, such as Phyllobius and Pachyrhinus (though I don't know about their distribution). See here for some of them - http://claude.schott.free.fr/Phyllobius/Pyll-Poly-liste-planches.html

     

    If I had to choose, I would say you are right with Polydrusus (based on how the antennae meet the head).

    But I could not ID the species (eg. P. impressifrons looks possible).

     

    Mike
