Mononychus punctum-album (NL: Lissnuitkever, Lisboorder / EN: Iris seed weevil / DE: Weißpunktige Schwertlilienrüssler, Irisrüssler / FR: Charançon de l’iris des marais) is a species of beetle in the curculionidae family.

I posted an image of this species a few days ago - see image 2012/06/21 for more info on the species.

In this image the weevil is sitting on the host plant: the Yellow Iris (Iris pseudacorus)
