Description

Female of the six-spotted leaf-rolling weevil (Apoderus (Leptapoderus) praecellens, family family Attelabidae) making a leaf-roll from one of the favourite host-plants, Rabdosia trichocarpa (family Lamiaceae). Let's roll! She deposited an egg inside the leaf-roll which would be a packed food as well as a safe shelter for the larva. She is a natural-born origami master! Early-June 2012 in Japan. This timelapse movie was reconstructed from the 5-sec-interval shots on two females. (12:58 pm - 13:57 pm for female-#1. 14:31 pm - 16:45 pm and 16:59 pm - 17:25 pm for female-#2.)
