Acorn Weevil pics for you plus my gratitude
I found you last week when I wanted to know what beautiful
bug was crawling on my kitchen bowl. Thanks to you I
discovered it was an Assasin Bug(pselliopus barberi) and a
whole new world was opened up to me. I had never even
heard of an Assasin bug before. Now I am a little addicted
to finding bugs in my yard and trying to identify them.
I guess I love the challenge, and it’s terribly fun to find
a match and put a name with the buggy face. I’ve been
using your site and the BugGuide. Thank you so much
for a wonderful and facinating resource for the bug illiterate.
My kids love it, too. We are working on creating science
journals this year, and our bug finds with proper identification
are a great addition! I thought you might like to have
some pictures of our Acorn Weevil. I noticed the one
you have is blurry. Also, I thought this was a pretty
picture of a Monarch Caterpillar. These were all taken
in my yard in Jefferson City, Missouri. I would like
to send other pictures just for fun, but only if you want
them. I know you get so many. With much gratitude
Thanks so much for your Acorn Weevil photo. We are linking
to an interesting
website about Acorn Weevils in the genus Curculio.
