Adults are identical in external appearance to the rice weevil (Sitophilus oryzae); dissection required to distinguish between the are reddish brown beetles with a characteristic long weevil snout and have 4 yellow to red spots. ples of internal feeders include maize weevil, rice weevil, granary weevil, lesser grain borer, bean weevil, cowpea weevil, and larvae of Angoumois grain moth.

i Thesis Abstract Maize (Zea mays L.) is the main staple food crop in Malawi grown by 97% of small holder farmers. However, the potential maize yields are reduced by postharvest losses of grain in storage due to the larger grain borer (Prostephanus truncatus Horn) and maize weevil (Sitophilus zeamais Motschulsky).Limited research is conducted to improve larger grain borer.
