does anyone know what species of beetle this is? We took this photo in the Tramuntana area in the north-west of Mallorca.
Genus Brachycerus; large weevils active in early spring, feeding on Liliaceae - bulbs of lilies including garlic; widespread large genus in Mediterranean and Africa; start near Brachycerus undatus. Max Barclay
Taking into account range, I think the most likely candidate is Brachycerus barbarus.
Thank you very much for you help - I wouldn't have know where to start otherwise!
