Snout and Bark Beetles, Part I  (two photos)
Genus Anthonomus

snout beetle

I found this long-nosed Snout Beetle in the wetlands below Jordanelle Dam in Wasatch County, Utah.
The adults feed on plants and flowers and the larvae feed on roots.  Beetles in this genus, such as the
boll weevil (Anthonomus grandis), can be very destructive.  © Carol Davis, 9-3-2006
