Conotrachelus tuberosus LeConte, female
ID confirmed from specimen, now a photo-voucher. Thanks Lisa.

Measured size 2.7 mm. A little tricky, but I'm sure this is correct. Host appears to be Urtica based on the notes of Blatchley and Ulke.

 
cool, thanks

 
Thanks!
Brad and V. for your encouragement and patience. :)

Moved tentatively based on Glenn's suggestion
very curious what Brad will come up with

Moved from Conotrachelus.

 
I debated
for a while before I posted this one. I thought it may be like the others, but it was so much smaller I decided to go ahead and post it just in case. :)

 
hey don't get too reflexive about posting stuff
dump it here indiscriminately, and leave the suffering to us

 
LOL
Will do. Just as soon as this weather breaks, I am out the door hunting!

Moved from Beetles.
