Weevil - Conotrachelus aratus

Weevil - Conotrachelus aratus
Hancock County, Indiana, USA
July 1, 2002
Size: 3.2 mm
Small weevil. Seems to be Conotrachelus but I can't quite place it.

Femora are bidentate. Costa 3 interruped twice, middle section maybe slightly more elevated. Pronotum seems distinct with a median carina (short, indistinct in this specimen but longer and more distinct on a second specimen) with four tubercles, two on each side of carina, arranged in a square pattern, but not connected to each other or carina.

Moved from Conotrachelus.

i would tentatively call it aratus

 
Robert Anderson says, "probably aratus"

 
Perhaps
Sternum 5 does have 2 distinct tubercles, putting it near aratus or schoofi.

 
i bounced the link to Bob; he'll get to it sooner or later

Agree with Conotrachelus
Robert Anderson usually gets us a species name on these alright!
