I used to see lots of these when I was growing up. They were my definition of "weevil", that lived around the house outside. Sadly I don't know what they actually are, so I was glad to see one again.

This was a tiny (2-3 mm) bug crawling on the river stones. It was too small to see properly. I had to look at the camera to get any sense of detail. I'm fairly sure this is Rhyparochromidae. It looks similar but not the same as Botocudo sp.

This was only around 5mm and was running really fast on a Eucalypt trunk. It disappeared under bark as soon as I started paying attention. I have no idea what it is.

I thought I was getting close when I saw Lagrioidea, and then was very disappointed that I'd seen one before and its proportions were quite different.

3-4mm I found this running fast amid a stream of ants. I hadn't seen anything like it before, so I snavelled it to cool it down to get more detail in the photos. Boris, this looks like your kind of territory?

This is another chapter into our investigations into Acacia dealbata pollinators. These were in and emerging from the A. dealbata seeds. They were then frozen and delivered to me (I know....scraping bottom of barrel etc). I suspect they are Pteromalidae. Does anyone recognise them or is able to ID them for me/us? There are two adults and two larvae amongst these images.

This was quite a patient pair. I think they understood how much rain was about to descend, whereas I was being much more hopeful. We find these all the time but don't know what they are yet?

On Acacia dealbata. This has the look of Rogadinae about it to me, but I'm not confident.

This was about 2mm and one of my final finds on Acacia dealbata (the field work is almost done!). What a weird little critter!

These were all impossible to see by eye. They were around the 2mm mark, and most were very uncooperative and I had limited time so hopefully I'll get another chance again.

This is diaphytya fulvescens, but that doesn't seem to be recognised.
Back out beating Acacia dealbata again.... I collect them in a tray, count and record and then let them go again.

Only a couple of mm long. Again, all of these are from Acacia dealbata. I'm helping out with some research (it's a shame I don't know more about the bugs!! I'm guessing that this is a chalcid wasp, but I'm proven wrong so often that I'll keep quiet.
