Fear No Weevil

Thursday, October 27, 2011 at 8:00am to 5:00pm

Mann Library, Gallery, Level 2
Cornell University Mann Library, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

Weevils—destroyers of crops… biocontrol agents…charismatic beauties? Kent Loeffler’s dazzling large-format digital images, featured in Cornell entomologist E. Richard Hoebeke’s forthcoming book, “An Illustrated Identification Guide to the Adventive (Non-Native) Weevils (Curculionoidea) of North America,” reveal the extraordinary diversity and, yes, beauty of the largest group of herbivorous beetles.

Dozens of these breathtaking macro-photos are on display in the Mann Library Gallery now through September 30, along with in-depth descriptions of both weevils and the photographic process used to capture them in such vivid detail.
