Metallic Green Weevil
Eurhinus magnificus Gyllenha
This weevil is found in Florida, probably imported through plant trade. It feeds on host plants and are often metallic and vibrant, making them look like small psychedelic elephant bugs. Weevils are part of the Coleoptera family. They’re often found in foods including nuts and seeds, so careful when you’re opening your next bag of flour- there could be some weevils hiding out! (At least they make for a good source of protein)
