Is this a species of brod-nosed weevil? - Ophryastes
Daggett, San Bernardino County, California, USA
February 15, 2015
Size: 1 1/8 in long 1/4 in wide
This beetle has been living on my Scotch Broom for about 4 days now. I believe it is some sort of brod-nosed weevil.

Any idea on which sub species
Any idea on which sub species it could possibly be? I know there are many in the mojave desert. All of my at home research is getting me no where. Most of the Id's I have found either are spotted or lack the deeper pigmentation.

yup, a nice Ophryastes
