Moved from Plum Curculio.

Moved from Conotrachelus.


Conotrachelus sp.
This weevil is, more than likely, in the genus Conotrachelus. Only around 200 species or so to choose from:-)

200 or not, but... this case i choose C. nenuphar without much hesiation

Sthereus quadrituberculatus Motschulsky
This is not Conotrachelus but rather is Sthereus quadrituberculatus.
