It’s my second time to visit the island of Siargao although I was here not to collect beetles but just to travel with a friend. But then, when we were in Taktak Falls, in the municipality of Sta. Monica which is located at the northern part of the island, a small pachyrrhynchine curculionid showed itself.
I’m not sure what the specific name of this Metapocyrtus sp. but the male was at a particular plant, probably feeding as the leaves showed signs of being chewed on. Not much were seen, only about two of these were at the same plant.e
