Caption: Black vine weevil (Otiorhynchus sulcatus), on a leaf, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). This insect is a pest that attacks a wide range of plants, including the yew, rhododendron, azalea, laurel, juniper, grape, holly, strawberry and many other woody and herbaceous plants. O. sulcatus is parthenogenic, meaning that it reproduces without sexual fertilization. There are no male black vine weevils, and the adults are all flightless female black vine weevils. The adults feed on the foliage of the host plants, while the grubs feed on the roots, and cause even more damage than the adults. Magnification: x4 at 6x7cm size.
