Weevil - Pheloconus infector

Weevil - Pheloconus infector
Altamonte Springs, Seminole County, Florida, USA
May 9, 2009
Size: 4-5mm
I just recently started keeping my beetles. I don't pin them but attach them to the top of the pin with an adhesive. I find it considerably dificult to get a good picture. I have have never been able to take a good picture inside my house... hopefully this is good enough to get some kind of id :]
