Trichosirocalus horridus thistle crown weevil? - Trichosirocalus horridus
Davenport / Nahant Marsh, Scott County, Iowa, USA

Before you frass this can you please try to confirm or get me a genus ID? I found this on the native field thistle in a planted prairie. It was the best shot I could get. It dropped to the ground when I attempt to move the leaf for a better image. Thanks.

good call

Sorry you haven't heard from a weevil person yet,
I'm moving the image here in the hopes that someone who knows the family will chime in.
Moved from Beetles.
