No, not truly! But it should have been called the Greedo Weevil (I'm looking sharply in your direction, taxonomists!). A friend discovered this little chap lurking about a backyard barbeque recently, and he happily posed for the paparazzi before flying away (the bug, not the friend). To give you some scale, it's on a regular laundry peg.
csironewsblog.com tells me it is in fact a Great Pine Weevil, although it could be another species of weevil; there are many similar in appearance. Resident expert & entomologist will probably set me right =)
