Moved from Ceutorhynchus.

C. americanus Buchanan, 1937
Don confirmed; i quote: "I was going to say 'no-way' to your C. americanus ID when looking at our identified material, but noticed that we had some of the species Tom photographed in our miscellaneous material. Decided to ID them, and found that they are indeed americanus (as is Tom's photo), and all of our "americanus" were in fact erysimi."

Boris, I'll start saving the weevils for you also.

nice example
. . . of Ceutorhynchus, nominate subgenus. This group, to my knowledge, contains the only metallic species of the subfamily, all live on Brassicaceae.
In metallic species, having white scales on dorsal surface like this one has, is uncommon - so there is chance we´ll figure it out one day.

You may keep weevils also - we have a fairly large weevil collection in Berlin Entomological institute, and I´m positive that a lot can be found there.
