early introduction - or native
forget about what I told. The species is already known from US under the (synonymous) name Hypera punctata - clover leaf weevil.

Thanks Boris
sorry I never got to trying to investigate your previous post. For some reason I never really warmed up to weevils, and I'm still trying to ID all the other families from my first summer of really collecting everything that came to a blacklight.

But since you put an exact ID on this one, now I still don't have to worry at least about this weevil! And this being my first photo I posted on BugGuide, it is especially nice to have a species ID! :)

Thanks,
Tim

recent introduction?
Hi Tim!

Your weevil really looks like the European species Hypera zoilus - so far not listed for north America.

Though the species feeds on clovers, it may be worth looking for it, being a potential pest insect.

regards, Boris
