Caption: Weevil. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head of a weevil. Its compound eyes (green) are seen, as well as its two elbowed (bent) antennae (centre left and right). This weevil has a typically elongated snout, called a rostrum, which has blade-like mandibles at its tip. Almost all weevils eat plant matter. There are over 50,000 species of weevil, making the superfamily Curculionoidea, to which the weevils belong, one of the largest insect groups. Magnification unknown.
