Listronotus appendiculatus (Boheman), male
Moved from Listronotus. ID'd from specimen, now a photo-voucher. Thanks Lisa.

These are difficult, and the strong medial carina on the rostrum is not typical. However, the shape of the genitalia is closest to this species, although slightly spade-shaped apically which is unlike the parallel sides as illustrated by Henderson 1940.

 
Listronotus ID
I do not believe this is appendiculatus for the following reasons:
1. The setae on both the elytra and rostrum are erect and much too coarse.
2. The scales on the elytra are too large.
3. L. appendiculatus has a pale band behind the midline on the elytra.
4. As mentioned, the rostral carina is too distinct.
Specimens I have collected and compared with those identified as L. appendiculatus by C.W. O'Brien do not agree with the photos shown.

 
thanks Glenn
It was a hasty move on my part. I'll revisit the specimen when I get a chance.
