Moved from Anthribus nebulosus.
Don´t know what it is, but sure not that genus/species (tarsi and antennae stouter in it, etc.).

Thanks for the ID.
Not to go against some of the best entomologists on bugguide, but it looks (to me) like something in the subfamily Bruchinae. Also I saw several of them, all on these flowers. Could you explain the identifying characteristics?(I'm just going by looks) Sorry for my entomological unexpertise. :) Thanks for the ID!

 
Bruchinae vs. Anthribidae
You are right, they can look close!
In Bruchines, the pronotum in general is of more conical shape, in most cases not as wide as the elytra at shoulders, and the antennae are never equipped with a 3-segmented club.

yes, Fungus weevil
Occurence on flower sure is accidential.

Fungus weevil?
My first thought is that this is an anthribid. Hopefully someone else will confirm. Why it was on the flower I have no idea.
