Inverts from Costa Rica I: Metamasius annulatus (Champion)

This rather brightly coloured weevil was found near the research tower at Santa elena Biological Reserve (close to the more famous and moure-touristed Monteverde reserve).

i can't tell you a great deal about it, other than other species in the genus are considered to be pests.

Thanks to Chris Lyal for the identification.
