Caption: Mating green weevils, Phyllobius pomeceus, seen here on a stinging nettle plant Urtica dioica. Weevils belong in the family of beetles and are usually distinguished by a long snout, called the rostrum, which carries at its tip blade-like mandibles for chewing. The forewings of beetles, called elytra, are hardened to form a protective, armour-like covering over the body of the insect. Beneath the elytra are the flimsy hind wings used in flight, an activity which is not well developed among beetles.
