(A,G) Dorsal view of the head capsule showing antenna (an), compound eyes (ce), rostrum (ro) and tubercles (tu). Fungal conidia attached and/or germinated on (B,H) left side of rostrum, (C,I) right side of rostrum, (D,J) funicles of the antenna, (E,K) compound eyes and (F,L) scales on the head. The red arrows point at the conidia and/or the germinated conidia of B27 (BF) and ECS1 (HL); the red boxes in image A and G illustrates the parts of head capsule shown at higher magnification in images BF and HL, respectively. As there were numerous conidia either attached to, or germinated on the weevil, the arrows are used to indicate examples.
