Abstract:

Individuals of the leaf mining, oak flea weevil, Rhynchaenus quercus (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) aggregate on oaks bearing leaves in a proper phenological state for oviposition. As pedunculate oaks differ in the time of spring development, weevils change host trees in the course of sexual and ovipositional activity, occupying those with just appeared leaves. Olfactory stimuli (aggregation pheromone?) connected with feeding by the females on leaves are responsible for the attractance of other females (and presumably males) to such trees. Aggregative behaviour of oak flea weevils can be interpreted as a specific adaptation to phenological ephermality of pedunculate oaks.
