Bergenia (Bergenia)-Root weevil

Includes black vine weevil (Otiorhynchus sulcatus)

Description and damage Adults are hard-bodied weevils with a broad snout and elbowed antennae. The black vine weevil is black in color with tufts of yellow scales in rows along the top of the beetle. They are visible by flashlight at night straddling the leaf as they feed. Feeding results in ragged leaf edges. Because leaves are "evergreen," damage accumulates over time.
