White weevil - Artipus floridanus

White weevil - Artipus floridanus
Vero Beach, Indian River County, Florida, USA
September 20, 2006
Size: 9mm


found a trustworthy reference

this looks like a reasonable match to me. 9mm is almost 3/8 inch and your link gives the upper limit as 1/4 inch.

I am not sure that the webpage is all that accurate. I will look around for other references.

I posted recently from AZ
