White Banded Beetle - Eurymycter fasciatus

White Banded Beetle - Eurymycter fasciatus
Harvard, Worcester County, Massachusetts, USA
June 9, 2005
Size: 6mm
At first I thought this was a snout beetle, from the size, coloration and overall shape, but it's not. Any ideas what it might be?

I just found one of these a couple days ago
and have been carrying it around in my pocket vial. If it is in good shape when I go back to visit my camera next (it's locked in the gun safe inside my shipping container) I'll get some shots. Maybe by then I'll have my 100mm.

Nice find Jim
Just remember to shoot the beetle with the camera, not a gun:-)

Identified using the UNH collection
with Donald Chandler's guidance.

Fungus weevil!
This is a neat insect in the family Anthribidae. I think it used to be in the genus Eurymycter, but the names have changed and I am no longer certain of that. It is so distinctive, we should collectively have no problem getting this to species.

Distinctive markings
Looks like it got it's nose and tail end dipped in white paint.
