I went to an insect exhibit in Tokyo one fateful day in the fall of 2018. It was on this fateful day that I would first learn about Mahakamia kampmeinerti, a species of weevil that has no English name whatsoever. There is also no information on this insect available anywhere on the internet in English. I checked! Therefore, I have made it my sworn duty to spread the word about this humble large beetle, that I have dubbed the "long-armed weevil", or the "Arms Akimbo weevil", after the Freakazoid character.
