Tiny unknown weevil - Glyptobaris lecontei

Tiny unknown weevil - Glyptobaris lecontei
Cass County, Texas, USA
April 22, 2008
Size: 1/8 inch long
My red-tipped photinia blossoms have been covered with these for a week or more. I know it is a very small weevil and I know it drops loose from it's perch at the slightest provocation. I could only get a usable shot by letting them drop into my hand. They curl up and lay still for a moment or two when that happens and that gives me time to get focused before they decide to uncurl and move.

A baridine weevil
Glyptobaris lecontei Champion, I believe.

 
Thanks
