ID
Notolomus variegatus (Suffrian) another palm flower weevil, common in FL and in Cuba and the Greater Antilles. Often taken with N. basalis.
Both are attracted to the freshly opened palm inflorescences and can be taken in the thousands from a single inflorescence. Some fly to lights too.

 
Thanks much for the dets
Ed beat on a lot of palm inflorescences to get a few of these two palm weevil spp... Thanks again, Mike
