Naupactus leucoloma Boheman, 1840 - (whitefringed weevil)

This polyphagous weevil is native to South America (Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay) and introduced into North America (1936), Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. The feeding on roots by the larvae may cause serious damage, especially on root crops. The adults feed on the foliage. The beetle only reproduces parthenogenetically and current populations consist only of females. However, some males had been collected previously in the native range (Rodriguero et al., 2019).
