I have been observing larvae like these inside the buds of bisexual Sidalcea flowers but so far not in the female flower buds.

The second photo shows effect of this predation. S. hendersonii flowers vary in appearance and I am suspecting this may because of insect predation.

Female flowers are surprisingly successful. My observations to date support Marshall & Ganders' research that this success might be because the female flowers do not seem to be predated upon by weevils. I wonder if this is because they provide less food per flower.

Bisexual flowers seem to be subject to some insect predation, possibly by Curculionid beetles (weevils)
