Any Idea? - Naupactus peregrinus

Any Idea? - Naupactus peregrinus
Birmingham, Alabama, USA
October 31, 2007
Size: 1/2 inch
I found this insect underneath a Lantana Leaf the other night. This was the best angle I could get without disturbing him. I was able to get a few shots of him and when I went to check my camera settings, he disappeared. This was the first sighting of this bug and I haven't seen them since. Some have suggested that it might be a weevil but the snout is too small, right?
