  duang nguang khao

 

Thailand

A tiny Rice Weevil, known in Thai as duang nguang khao or mod khao san. The pictures shown here are enlarged. Its real length is only about 2 millimeters (fig.).

 

Its colour is overall blackish-brown, with four vague, reddish-orange spots arranged in a cross, on the wing covers. Its body also has punctures, tiny indentations that, due to light, may look somewhat like whitish to silvery spots. See also List of Thai Insect Names.
