Cyrtepistomus? - Cyrtepistomus castaneus

Cyrtepistomus? - Cyrtepistomus castaneus
Framingham, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA
April 28, 2007
Found this weevil in my yard and thought it was a faded Polydrusus, but upon a closer look at the guide I am wondering if this is in fact Asiatic Oak Weevil (Cyrtepistomus castaneus)?
