Bob Anderson says, "I think it's an Acalles maybe A.minutissimus
"But there is another similar looking new one from the seeds/pods of red mangrove."

Moved from Pseudoacalles nuchalis.

Red Mangrove
Thanks for this information. Interestingly this part of Palm Beach is as far away from any appreciable numbers of Rhizophora mangle as one can get, with the fully-developed intracoastal areas and little natural areas left. I'm sure there are patches of it here and there, but I can't think of a place with a lot of it for a number of miles.

A. sablensis?
Looks pretty solid for A. sablensis based on this photo and description, actually.

Not so much similarity to minutissimus to my eye:

Moved tentatively, will seek confirmation

doesn't look like a member of that subfamily, let alone tribe...
neat one -- must see a dorsal to proceed

Moved from Conotrachelini.

Two photos just added

awesome, thanks -- nice find
