(Anthonomus juglandinsidias minor)
This farmer’s nuisance is distinguished from the Greater walnut saboteur weevil by its iridescent trochanters and smaller maxillary palps. Its secure place in the all-arthropod Tholomartholomadic zodiac stems from its abundance in northern Tholomartholomasia, its distinctive chirp and the famous “Fable of the Lesser walnut saboteur weevil and the Crippled squab” — still a popular subject of Tholomartholomadic picto-strudels.
