Black beetle with long

Black beetle with long "nose" having two appendages - Odontocorynus
Portland, Cumberland County, Maine, USA
July 10, 2007
Size: 1/8 - 1/4 inch
A very small black beetle with long "nose" and two appendages (?) coming out of the nose. I am curious - what is this?

probably frassable
Moved from Odontocorynus.

Moved from Beetles.

Probably Odontocorynus. See here.

I've looked at the page - to me, it looks like scutellumalbum....but it's hard to see

I'm not an expert and this group is particularly large, diverse and difficult to ID, but you may have some luck (and fun) browsing the weevils in the guide here.

Personally I find this particular group of beetle fascinating!

Yes, I've just looked at the weevils - they are way too cool and fascinating!

Weevil, actually.
Wish I could tell you more.

Aren't they strange!
