I read that they only lay eggs in 3 of our native trees…correct? Lasiorhynchus means “densely hairy rostrum”, and barbicornis  means “bearded horn”. Although many model systems are restricted to laboratory studies of behavior, this study consisted of a series of field observations on a population of wild L. barbicornis to determine the existence of conditional alternative mating tactics in association with status (body size).

Native to New Zealand; Life History. Neff Also, small hornless male O. taurus and Trypoxylus dichotomus septentrionalis beetles will fight with other hornless males in addition to sneaking behavior, although small O. taurus are never seen to defend territories (Moczek and Emlen 2000; Hongo 2003). 2014), which roughly corresponds to the largest males using sneaking behavior. Adults of both sexes show remarkable body length variation (males 15–90mm, females 12–50mm) and possess an elongated and sexually dimorphic rostrum (Painting et al.


However, to fully understand size-related reproductive success in L. barbicornis, future studies should incorporate paternity analyses to determine the influence of sperm competition and cryptic female choice.

We previously found no dimorphism in rostrum size for male L. barbicornis; instead the scaling relationship was best described by a nonlinear Weibull growth function curve with an asymptote showing physiological constraint in rostrum size for the very largest males (Painting and Holwell 2013; see also Figure 4). The decision to sneak or fight was found to depend on the presence and size of a second male, with small males likely to guard females and challenge opponents if they are of similar or smaller size, but employ sneaking tactics if the opponent is larger. .

Moczek . Brassil . Fascinating, aren’t they? Okada ARTs are also present in species that show intrasexual size variation and/or dimorphism, but lack weaponry such as dung flies (Scathophaga stercoraria) and Dawson’s burrowing bees (Amegilla dawsoni) (Alcock 1996; Pitnick et al.

Males of the staphylinid beetle Leistorophus versicolor possess enlarged mandibles used as weapons, but some males (usually smaller) can also use female mimicry to avoid aggression (Forsyth and Alcock 1990). .

*Address correspondence to Christina J. Painting. Giraffe weevils are a rare example of a species that has evolved ARTs characterized by highly context-dependent behavior in which sneaking and aggressive behaviors are both used by small males in relation to opponent body size. . Holwell

Large males may adopt strategies such as retaliatory copulations or cryptic adaptations such as increased ejaculate load or enhanced sperm quality (Tomkins and Simmons 2000; Hunt and Simmons 2001, 2002; Simmons et al.

Here, we determine reproductive tactics in the giraffe weevil. . CC This is supported by a recent study that found that males can assess the resource-holding potential of their opponent in relation to their own size during fights (Painting and Holwell, 2014a). Only focal males <30-mm long were included in this analysis (N = 21 males, 75 observations).


The New Zealand giraffe weevil (Lasiorhynchus barbicornis) is endemic to our country, and is in fact our longest beetle.

Bonduriansky Horn possession reduces maneuverability in the horn-polyphenic beetle. For example, male green tree frogs (Hyla cinerea) readily switch between calling and satellite tactics depending on body condition that affects the ability of males to vocally compete for mates (Humfeld 2013).
