  1. I will dismiss your self-criticism as always! Can't believe how tiny they are, and such a cool species, like a narwhal with legs ;) Posted 12 days ago
  2. Weevils are always welcome, in my opinion :) Posted 11 days ago

Archarrius pyrrhoceras is a tiny (1.6-2.4mm) weevil living on oak trees. The female bores into the common globular galls on oak caused by Cynips quercusfolii to deposit an egg. The mature larva will leave the gall in fall and pupate in the ground.
