Apion pomonae F Vetch seed weevil

Adults of this widely distributed weevil occur from late May onwards. They infest various kinds of Fabaceae, including vetch seed crops. Eggs are laid from mid-June onwards at the early flowering stage, each being inserted into a developing pod through the base of a flower or flower bud, often several eggs per pod. Larvae feed on the developing ovules and eventually pupate between two of the seeds. New adults appear from August onwards. Adults are 2.8-3.5 mm long, with a black or bluish-black head and thorax, blue or greenish-blue, somewhat downy, elytra and black legs.
