Snout and Bark Beetle Request - Naupactus peregrinus

Snout and Bark Beetle Request - Naupactus peregrinus
Schulenburg, Fayette County, Texas, USA
October 13, 2012
I believe this is a Broad-nosed Weevil sub-family Entiminae. Maybe a genus Sitona because their skins seem to look smoother. My best guess was Sitona lineellus.
