Metallic Green Weevil
Eurhinus magnificus Gyllenha
This weevil is found in Florida, probably imported through plant trade. It feeds on host plants and are often metallic and vibrant, making them look like small psychedelic elephant bugs. Weevils are part of the Coleoptera family. They’re often found in foods including nuts and seeds, so careful when you’re opening your next bag of flour- there could be some weevils hiding out! (At least they make for a good source of protein)

MYTHOLOGY MEME ~ [5/8] Legendary Creatures ~ Seelie Faeries
The Seelie court are known to seek help from humans, to warn those who had accidentally offended them, and to return human kindness with favors of their own. Still, a fairy belonging to this court will avenge insults and could be prone to mischief. The most common time of day to see them is twilight. Other names for the Seelie court are ‘The Shining Throng’ and ‘The Golden ones’ and ‘The light Court’. The categorization of fairies based on court is whether or not they are a light or dark fairy. Light fairies are known for playing pranks on humans and having a light hearted attitude, forgetting their sorrows quickly and not realizing how they might be affecting the humans they are playing pranks on.
