Rhopalapion longirostre is a well characterized Apionid weevil, developing on hollyhock (Alcea rosea L.). 20 years ago, the species was not indigenous and occurred only for short periods in South Germany. In recent years there are also records from North and East Germany (Hamburg, Bremen, Berlin: new record in 2001). The species appears mainly in urban gardens on hollyhock and can be well detected. For that reason and because of the distinct habitus - the females have the longest rostrum of all Middle-European Apionidae - the recent spreading of Rhopalapion longirostre in Germany can be documented easily. The significance of species-rich gardens with a heterogeneous vegetation structure as a biotope for insects is also emphasized by the dispersal of Rhopalapion longirostre.
