This intriguing little thing found its way onto my hand while visiting family in Michigan this 4th of July weekend. Very small, very active. The only aqua colored insects I could find online were weevils and this guy didn’t have a weevil face. I tried to get a closer shot but this was as clear as I could get. It was a sunny day, approx 79-82 degrees with low humidity near Lake Lancer in Gladwin, MI (mid-Michigan, lower peninsula). Thank you for your beautiful website ?
Signature: Bugs are beautiful
Your insect is in fact a Weevil, which is a classification of Beetles. It is a Green Immigrant Leaf Weevil, Polydrusus formosus, which is represented on BugGuide. According to BugGuide: “introduced from Europe, where it is widespread.”
Thank you so much! What a pretty little thing. I hate that it’s an invasive introduced species. Your website is just wonderful, thank you for your love for the little guys!
