Otio? - Otiorhynchus meridionalis
Salt Lake City, (N40°46.727'W111°52.629'ele4609'), Salt Lake County, Utah, USA
May 16, 2007
Size: 9mm
Found as part of a group under bark during cool weather. Wondering if this could be O. clavipes based on size and lack of conspicuous spines on the front legs.

Moved from Otiorhynchus.

not clavipes
O.clavipes is completely naked, and a little bigger. This appears to be the "lilac root weevil", O.meridionalis.
