Leaf-Rolling Weevil

Homoeolabus analis, known generally as the leaf-rolling weevil or oak leaf rolling weevil, is a species of leaf-rolling weevil in the family of beetles known as Attelabidae. It is found in North America. It is often preyed upon by the obligate egg predator and nest thief Thief Weevil.

This weevil creates a place for young to hatch and pupate in a rather complicated process that results in a tightly rolled cylinder made from a leaf.
