The weevil, Myllocerus fotedari Ahmad (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) is being reported as new pest of Chinese rose, Rosa Chinensis Jacq. in Kashmir, India. It was found damaging the rose plants at different locations in Kashmir (India). Since the weevil is major pest of walnut, the rose plants grown near walnut trees have been found more vulnerable to weevil infestation. The nature and extent of damage and morphological features of this weevil have also been studied. Further investigation is required for understanding the polyphagous nature of this species.
