Hi, bugman! 🙂 I took a photo of this little guy late February in Baguio City, Philippines. After a while, a smaller version of the bug decided to hang out on him (her?). A reverse search of google images yielded no results, and my curiosity is killing me. An ID would be much appreciated — then I would no longer have to caption the photographs as “funky bugs!” 🙂
Signature: Thanks, Isa
All we can provide at this time is that these are Weevils, beetles in the family Curculionidae, and that they appear to be engaging in mating activity, including competition to see who gets the fertile female.
Thanks for the quick reply, Daniel! Much a lot! 🙂
