iNaturalist (https://www.inaturalist.org) is a citizen science project that is building a comprehensive database of life on earth from sounds and photographs posted by users. As an active identifier on iNaturalist, I spend a substantial amount of time suggesting identifications for plants and animals (but particularly weevils) that have been posted to the platform.

If you have found my identifications helpful, and wish to show your gratitude in a practical way, please purchase this PDF with my thanks. Proceeds will go towards purchasing books and resources for increasing my identification skills, or to support further research into describing new weevil species. 

Many thanks, and keep observing!

This month: inspired by H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds, we have a Mecomastyx lacordairei (left) and a Mecopus bispinosus (right) laying waste to a city. SPECIAL BONUS: Another member of the family also got inspired and depicted the glorious triumph resulting from the arrival of a starship which destroyed the weevils, leaving them in a dismembered heap.
