Moved from Anthonomini.

 
Interesting! A. undulatus
The nose on this image appears quite longer than the nose on my specimen.

 
Anthonomus dentoni!
Not quite as interesting any longer! =] Mystery solved? A new species for the guide anyway.

Fruiting Trees in the area
I was looking for hosts and I did find a lot of Sitka Mountain Ash in the area.

HA!!
you're my hero.

The nose doesn't count when you measure these guys, does it? Also, the image in your link on the info page has two spurs off the first femur and one spur off femur II. Does that mean the ID isn't right? My specimen doesn't quite match.

 
all good points; yes, weevil size is measured sans snout
i will ask Dr Clark to take another look.
i also start to doubt the ID: in addition to the all-important femoral armature that does indeed look quite different, both the slender body [obovate in F. r.] and the vestiture pattern don't add up.
here is another good pic taken by a friend around his country house.
i'm quite familiar with F. rectirostris since high school when i first started collecting beetles, and would have recognized it, or at least checked that option out before asking around.
if we're dealing with a non-native species, i would suggest checking east Asian Anthonomus first (Japan & pays limitrophes) --tons of spp. there
