This photo shows an adult of Acanthoscelides obtectus (Coleoptera: Bruchidae) emerging from a seed. Carried by bean seeds, the insect spreads through trade and introduction and is a major pest in agriculture and imported plant quarantine. A study on the effects of temperature on the development and reproduction of A. obtectus was reported in the previous issue (pp. 739-746). This photo was taken by DAI Chuan-Yong at Guizhou University, Guiyang, Guizhou, in September, 2015.
