Caption: Acorn weevil. Macrophotograph of the acorn weevil Balanius rectus, on an acorn. The long downward curving proboscis is used for boring into plant tissue, notably acorns; on the head are also a pair of antennae and compound eyes (black). The snout beetles (family: Curculionidae), of which the acorn weevil is one species, are distributed worldwide. Due to their boring habits in wood, seeds, and leaves, many types of weevil are considered pests.
