Which of these beetles is the odd one out?
a) the blue/green one on the left
b) the black one in the middle
c) the brown one on the right
The answer is b) the black one in the middle. That long, whiffly nose (a bit like an elephant’s trunk) marks him out as a weevil, all of whom have distinctive noses. Weevils are one of about twenty different beetle types. The other two are Soft-winged flower beetles.
