Coleoptera: Curculionidae, Pseudocneorhinus bifasciatus
The adults are a mottled, grayish, light brown. The bodies are more round and stubby than elongate as with many weevils. Although they feed in daytime, Japanese weevils frequently hide under leaves or in crotches and are not easily detected in light infestations. Larvae are legless, more or less C-shaped grubs in the soil, seldom seen or found. Japanese weevils, Pseudocneorhinus bifasciatu, are in the order Coleoptera and the family Curculionidae.
