    1. Comment on Black Mulberry - Morus nigra 19 days ago
      Around Lyon, my place, Morus (white and black species) were cultivated up to the early XX century to breed silkworms .
      There are still few remaining "wild" trees, I use to pick berries every year. Black ones are better than white ones !
    2. Comment on Araecerus fasciculatus (De Geer, 1775) one month ago
      No coffee beans at home.
      These beetles fly as fast as flies, this guy probably came from outside.
      I wonder what is their favourite food apart from coffee beans which have been "banned" by Mr Nespresso...
    3. Thank you

      Thank you.
      There were many of them that day in the woods.
    5. Comment on Azure Weevil (Eupholus geoffroyi) 2 months ago
      Bonjour,
      if I refer to the photos available on the web, it is more likely Eupholus geoffroyi, what do you think ?
    6. This lovely beetle seems to be part of Entimini tribe, may be Rhigus sp. ?
      Oh, sorry I see you have investigated already !
    7. Comment on Large Eyes - Cryptocephalini 3 months ago
      Bonjour,
      I think it might be another family, probably tribe Cryptocephalini, may be genus Cadmus ?
    8. Bonjour, I think there is a small mistake in the species description below: not Anthribidae but Dryophthoridae isn't it ?
    9. Comment on Diaperis boleti (Linnaeus, 1758) 6 months ago
      All these species are quite common, and especially this one. There are so many more missing yet, 100 lives would not be enough to take pictures of the beattles from France only !

      Well, I remain on my opinion, but Boris Büche is much more qualified than me and his opinion is much more "trustable" !
