Adults are brown, up to 10 mm long, and have a long snout. They are similar to and
larger than alfalfa weevil adults but do not have the dark stripe down the back. Larvae
have brown heads; roll into tight C-shape when disturbed. Clover leaf weevil larvae
begin feeding on plants early in the spring. Infested plants become ragged as the
grubs chew out small holes and irregular patches from leaves. Damage is most severe
during late, cool, dry springs. During wet or humid weather, many larvae are killed
by a fungal disease.
