''Curculio glandium'' is a species of carpophagus weevil, known as the acorn weevil. It is native to eastern North America. It eats by a rostrum, an elongated snout, that is used for piercing. Male/Female differentiation can be determined using the rostrum as female's are longer. The larvae are short, and cylindrical in shape, and move by means of ridges on the underside of the body. Adults can reach a length of 4 to 8 mm.
