Wikipedia Abstract

Acanthoscelides obtectus, commonly known as the bean weevil, is a species of beetle. The species was described in 1831 by Thomas Say. Bean weevils feed on vetches, beans and other leguminous plants. They are generally considered a pest species for this reason. Originating in Central America they have been inadvertently spread around the world in grain shipments.
