Hey! This bug Landed on my windshield today!!! I had seen your site some time ago while I was trying to identify another bug(which just so happened to be a waterbug).. Anyway I just happened to be on my way home, and I try to always keep my camera with me, which(lucky me) has digital macro, so I got a decent shot!! I am hoping you could help me identify it, it was just TINY!!!! I would say maybe 2 millimeters Long!! NO JOKE it was tiny, but it flew away before I could get a better pic.. Its Orange and black and has 4 normal size legs that were attached to its abdomen and 2 MUCH larger ones attached to its thorax, or at least appeared to be legs, then on the front of its head directly between its eyes were two kind of like feelers or antanae I’m not sure, and then between those was something like a maxilla, or something.. Well, hope you can help, I’ve never seen this one before.. I’m in Sarasota, FL USA, so maybe they just hide, or its a traveler!! THANKS!!!
Knowing this was a species of Weevil, we quickly located the Cycad Weevil, Rhopalotria slossoni, on BugGuide. Once we had a name, we found that the Cycad Weevil ranges from Miami to the Everglades, and that it is a significant pollinator of the Cycad Zamia pumila.
