  1. I think this insect is Myllocerus undatus. After comparing with other photos, I'm almost sure is this species. Posted one year ago, modified one year ago
    1. I'm a bit confused by the name of this species. Most seem to associate Myllocerus undatus with the common name Sri Lankan Weevil. Which looks much paler and isn't reported in Australia, that I know of.

      I think for this one we need a second opinion from an expert. I'm not a weevil expert, to be clear :)

      1. Yes you are right. I'm no weevil expert either but I saw some photos and it looked quite similar to the Asian Grey Weevil. Maybe, an expert might appear and help identify it. Posted one year ago
