Caption: Painted weevil (Eupholus schoenherri). The weevils, or snout beetles, form the largest family of beetles (Curculionidae). The weevil is easily identifiable by its long rostrum or snout (top centre), which is an elongated part of the front portion of the head. The tip of the rostrum contains tiny chewing mouthparts and the rostrum is housed in an abdominal groove during rest. Upon disturbance, a weevil feigns death. Although weevils are more commonly small agricultural pests, the painted weevil is larger but causes negligible damage to crops. This insect is found across Southeast Asia.
