One of the world’s most colorful weevils, this species and others in its genus live in New Guinea and surrounding islands. Like other beetles, weevils undergo complete metamorphosis. Eggs are well-hidden and hatch into caterpillar-like grubs with a singular focus on eating.

After pupating, the weevil takes on its famous, charismatic form with a long rostrum (snout). These specialized mouthparts allow weevils to bore into vegetation. Eupholus feeds on wild yam, which is poisonous to most other animals. Its bright colors warn would-be predators that this weevil makes an unpleasant meal.

Don't forget to subscribe to the Bug Box in the future, so you never miss out.
