Rhyephenes gayi
Rhyephenes gayi, el primer gorgojo que he visto en Chile. Este escarabajo es plaga en bosques, donde los orificios perforados en la corteza por los adultos y las galerías subcorticales producidas por las larvas permiten la entrada de agua y hongos, acelerando la decadencia de árboles débiles. Su capacidad de dispersión es baja, ya que al tener los élitros fusionados no puede volar.
Rhyephenes gayi, the first weevil I've seen in Chile. This beetle is a forest pest, since the holes made in the bark by adults and the galeries beneath the bark made by the larvae allow water and fungi into the wood, thus debilitating weak trees. They have a low capacity for dispersion, since their elytra are fused and thus cannot fly.
No, I haven't been eaten by the bugs I usually chase in the middle of nowhere :D
I'm still alive and well, although swamped between work and school. Lots of things to read, and a few projects on my plate.

I'll try to keep you posted!
