Is This Suborder Adephaga? - Otiorhynchus sulcatus
Logy Bay, Northeast Avalon, Newfoundland/Labrador, Canada

Size: 10mm Body Length
I found this beetle sitting on our concrete driveway mid-afternoon. I'm assuming it's a ground beetle. Can anyone be more specific? I looked through the guide pages but didn't notice anything to match this one.

Curculionidae: Otiorhynchus sulcatus
Far from it - the opposite end of the order in suborder Polyphaga. Looks like the black vine weevil.

 
Thanks! - Moved
Thanks for setting me straight! I couldn't have been much further away unless I'd thought it wasn't a beetle at all. I think I'm learning though with all the helpful comments. :) I've moved this to the guide page for Species Otiorhynchus sulcatus

 
Weevils
The key feature here is the antennae fused with the "snout" so they come out near the tip

 
Thanks.
I appreciate the added description. I'm learning --- SLOWLY --- but I AM learning.
