Lixus angustatus

June 2009

Hello dear reader!

To the family of weevils (Curculionidae) also belong the Lixus angustatus:

Typical for weevils is their behaviour, when they feel recognized,....

... then they just let themselves fall like dead - also from a great height - down to the floor and

remain in place and position in order to avoid to be recognized and not to be identified as possible prey to any other beings:

And here a photo of mating:

These are nice guys!!:

From March to May I met this weevils quite frequently in my biotope.
