Weevil \Wee"vil\, n. [OE. wivel, wevil, AS. wifel, wibil; akin
to OD. wevel, OHG. wibil, wibel, G. wiebel, wibel, and
probably to Lith. vabalas beetle, and E. weave. See Weave.]
Any one of numerous species of snout beetles, or
Rhynchophora, in which the head is elongated and usually
curved downward. Many of the species are very injurious to
cultivated plants. The larv[ae] of some of the species live
in nuts, fruit, and grain by eating out the interior, as the
plum weevil, or curculio, the nut weevils, and the grain
weevil (see under Plum, Nut, and Grain). The larv[ae]
of other species bore under the bark and into the pith of
trees and various other plants, as the pine weevils (see
under Pine). See also Pea weevil, Rice weevil, Seed weevil
, under Pea, Rice, and Seed.
