It looks like a curculio but I'm no's wing covers are irridescent golden green...and as I said it is present at the same time as a burgeoning aphid infestation... I picked about eight of these off my rose in a very short time...
Can anyone on goY tell me what I've got?




it looks like a weevil and they are usually sap suckers, so i guess it is up to no good.
probably un linked to the aphids.
