Apion (Rhopalapion) longirostre

This weevil is an alien species in Europe living on the ornamental plant Alcea rosea (Common Hollyhock). It has been spreading very rapidly all across Europe during the last 10-15 years. It is now very common in Belgium. However it don't seems to cause any important problem on native fauna and flora for the moment.
