Lithinus Sepidoides - side view A super weird tiny weevil, full of hairs and bumps. It&#039;s only a few mm in size and due to its odd body, it&#039;s hard to tell which side is which. It&#039;s quite obscure, it seems only known from insect specimen collections. Note that its hairs usually are much more spiky, my specimen may be affected by the drying process.<br />
