Lasiorhynchites coeruleocephalus is a beetle from family Rhynchitidae, which is close to the better known, large family Curculionidae. Like Curculionidae, the face of Rhynchitidae beetles finishes in a trump, but their antennas are straightforward, not in angle. Though the specific name coeruleocephalus, this beetle is not blue; the head and the extremities are black, while its body is beautifully colored in iridescent mahogany. All the body has hairs.
