Otiorhynchus - Otiorhynchus meridionalis

Otiorhynchus - Otiorhynchus meridionalis
Prescott, Lynx Lake, Yavapai County, Arizona, USA
September 1, 2008
A little smaller and shinier than O. sulcatus that was found in the same location

yes, this one's diff.; O. meridionalis comes to mind

So I should bother Charles again?

 
no... not with this one :-]
it's up to you, of course, 'cuz AZ is of special interest to you, but to me it's just another eurorhynchus that doesn't affect The Big Picture all that much and proving it either way is quite inconsequential. Spare O'B for Advanced Studies!

Otiorhynchus meridionalis Gyllenhal
You were right again, and this is a new state record for AZ (not just bugguide AZ), O'Brien det.
