|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.
