Moved from Snout and Bark Beetles.
great job finding new ones for the guide, Tim!

thank you both
I went back to shoot a dorsal image of this weevil, but now I can't find it. But I do get these regularly in some numbers, so worse case I'll post another one by mid summer.

Bagous sp.
the overlapping, adpressed scales of the body, forming the plastron, leave no doubt.

 
i quote Robert Anderson's e-mail of March 3:
"looks like a member of the Stenopelmini, maybe an Onychylis. I am at home and would need to look at the collection to check"
(Bob is on vacation now. -v)

looks BG-new to me
