- ... We have evaluated the potential of a North American aquatic weevil, Euhrychiopsis lecontei, to serve as an agent of biological control for an exotic weed, Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum), which is currently found throughout much of the United States and in some southern provinces of Canada. We have found this weevil on M. spicatum in lakes where populations of the exotic weed have de ...

- ... The Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum) population in Brownington Pond, Vermont, declined between 1986 and 1989. Watermilfoil covered ≈10‐11 ha of the littoral zone in 1986. Less than 0.5 ha remained in 1989. An herbivorous weevil (Euhrychiopsis lecontei), which is native to North America, was found associated with this watermilfoil population and we hypothesized that this weevil played ...
