Hickory nut weevil larva - Curculio caryae

Hickory nut weevil larva - Curculio caryae
Arboretum, Madison, Wisconsin, USA
October 25, 2005
Size: 10 mm
I opened one hickory nut and there it was inside, quite lively. Weevil larvae have no legs. Perhaps this one is Curculio caryae (Horn)? See the nut below, in case I got it wrong please correct me.
