My best guess is Larinus (1). It looks somewhat different from previous guys. Any chance to species ID?

Moved
Moved from Seedhead Weevil.

the waxy stuff has been rubbed off this one
Moved from Beetles.

I thought the lateral margins of this guy was rounder than others.

 
good eye... might be L. obtusus, too
turns out, 'they' have imported allegedly 3 diff. spp. of this [pretty confusing] subgenus; need a good ventral + rostrum closeup to tell, but i know the bug is long gone
