Naupactus species
I think the species shown is Naupactus peregrinus. From the photo it is much more brown and the scales more dense on the elytra than what I have in the collection as leucoloma. In leucoloma the vestiture along the median line of the pronotum is directed cephalad whereas the vestiture is directed caudad in the posterior half in peregrinus. Also in leucoloma the rostrum is barely tapering and obviously tapering in peregrinus.
