Next up, the earthworms. This is not a target group of mine and I have never actively pursued them. The single figure I have at the time of this writing is one that came in a set along with four arthropods. That being said, I will eventually like to get more of them. But for now, just one:

I. Pheretima communissima.

Leaf-rolling weevils in the family Attelabidae.

I. Rose curculio, Merhynchites bicolor.
One figure, by an unknown manufacturer. This is a tentative ID of mine, based on its resemblance to M. bicolor on a poster of beetles that served as the inspiration for the XX series; this may even be an XX knock-off, but I do not know the full extent of what XX made.

II. Giraffe weevil, Trachelophorus giraffa.
1. unknown manufacturer
2. unknown manufacturer
3. Imperial Toys (Bugs n' Jugs) [this might represent another species, but I have a feeling the green color is just artistic license]
