Moved from Anthonomus.

This looks like an Anthonomus eugenii Cano. If so it is a Northern range extention, but not a surprising one. The specimen is slightly teneral in color but matches some of my material perfectly.

opinion of Robert Anderson:
"Don't know it"
no surprise we don't, either :-]

Anthonomus sp.

there's a chance...
...this is just a dark A. suturalis; the photo is really good and i believe IDable; pls be patient!

How about...
... A. bisignif*er? I've seen a lot of insects in my area that were introduced from Europe and Asia.

I added an image to show that the same pattern of heavily haired areas and bare spots seem to appear on both sides and also to better show the pale pattern on its sides below the elytra. Hope it helps.

thanks for the add'l picture
definitely not bisignifer; i've sent an e-mail to an expert asking to check our Anthonomus -- don't know if he will, though

Thank You
What do you see that places it there?
