Molytinae > Conotrachelus sp ? - Cophes obtentus

Molytinae > Conotrachelus sp ? - Cophes obtentus
Middleburg, Clay County, Florida, USA
July 8, 2009
Size: 6.44mm
Collected under light. This keyed out to Molytinae, then to a Conotrachelus sp. I would
instantly throw it in Dr O'briens talented lap as I did not find any comparative photo's.
My camera does not like to focus on weevil scales!

ID
Cophes obtentus (Herbst), Cryptorhynchinae. A tough group to ID without a collection of the genera.

 
Rhynchus
Thanks v: I messed up on key #11 w/rostral channel. It extends into
mesosternum, which does lead to Cryptorhynchinae. Opps! I also
discounted Rhynchus because the key said "front femur simple, lacking
tooth" which I read as front tibiae...lacking...etc. I need to take
remedial reading I think. I submitted some poor photo's of a "Rhynchus apiculatus"
in April. This new one looks somewhat different and is almost 1/2 larger than the little
fella from April. Thanks again.
