Hopatcong (Pm); Anglesea (Sm); larvae on acorns. The species of this genus are all nut-weevils, and those that feed in hickory and chestnut are often seriously injurious. The chestnut weevils in New Jersey are especially troublesom.e where the European and Jap- anese varieties are grown. There is no insecticide that is available to reach the insect in any stage, and the only methods of control are to collect the nuts as soon as they fall and market them, or to store them in tight barrels, from which the larvae cannot escape when they emerge from the nuts. Family BRENTHID^. Contains only a single very curious species, in which the males have prominent mandibles at the ends of the short robust snout, and the females have long, cylindrical beaks, by means of which they bore into the wood to lay their eggs. When these beaks become wedged, as they sometimes do, the males use their forceps-like jaws to pull them out. EUPSALIS Lee. E. minuta Dru. Throughout the State on chestnut, oak and maple;, hardly common anywhere.. Please note that these images are extracted from scanned page images that may have been digitally enhance
