Aulacobaris lepidii (Germar)
Specimen now a photo-voucher. Thanks John, a really nice find.

 
I thought it was rather stunning
One of those things that arouses some excitement when you find it in your net :-)

ID confirmed by B.A. Korotyayev
Moved from Baridini.

 
Thank you both
I don't mind the lowly foreigners, at least not when they are as striking as this one was.

Moved
Moved from Beetles.

wow... looks a lot like Baris lepidii Germar
...which is another eurotramp that may or may not be recorded in America

 
Whatever it is
I was happy to find it in my net, lovely thing.

 
feel free to bet your pygidium on it
i've sent a note to Rick Hoebeke who is about to publish a paper summarizing data on America's non-native weevils

 
Oh, no
I never gamble with that thing, Brad has the specimen.

 
loosen up man
whatever
[watching Wimbledon, after, like, .6L alcohol down --so don't be too judgmental, please; i mean, EtOH equivalent]

 
You are about nine shots ahead of me
I'd best get drinkin'
