Tiny snout beetle - Phyllotrox ferrugineus

Tiny snout beetle - Phyllotrox ferrugineus
Archbold Biological Station - Lake Placid, Highlands County, Florida, USA
August 15, 2010
Size: 2mm or so
This was an accidental capture, he happened to be on the same flower a bumble bee was flying around. He is pretty tiny. That is the interior of a prairie clover flower cluster.

Moved tentatively; pls replace with a better pic ...
...should an opportunity present itself ))

Moved from Snout and Bark Beetles.

looks like Phyllotrox ferrugineus to me

Thanks =v=
should I move it or is that tentative?
