Snout Beetle - Ischnocerus infuscatus

Last evening at my blacklights I caught what I believed to be a very small Cerambycidae. I didn't have my glasses on at the time, but I did notice the long antennae. Mounting it this morning I realized it was some kind of a Curculionidae? Could not find ID and have never seen one with antennae this long. Help?

Moved from Beetles.

Moved from ID Request.

male Ischnocerus infuscatus
male anthribids often sport grotesquely long antennae, rivaling the best endowed bycids in proportions to body
