Ian Cooper writes (September 25): I have just returned from another photo shoot along the Galloping Goose trail between Harriet Road and Tillicum Road. There were a few of these odd-looking weevils feeding on a broad leafy plant that looked a bit like giant rhubarb growing amidst the cattails.
We thank Scott Gilmore for identifying it as Lixus (probably rubellus).
