[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Portuguese]
Curculionidae is the family of the "true" weevils (or snout beetles). With over 60,000 species described worldwide, it is the largest of beetle families.

They are recognized by their distinctive long snout and geniculate antennae with small clubs; beyond that curculionids have considerable diversity of form and size, with adult lengths ranging from 1 to 40 mm.

Weevils are almost entirely plant feeders, and most species are associated with a narrow range of hosts, in many cases only living on a single species.
