This pinned specimen was collected March 10, 2006 at Crooked River state park in southeast Georgia. It was found in an area heavily populated by saw palmettos. I was very shocked at the size, weevils I’ve encountered in the past are always so small. I did not notice any weevil image on your site that matched up with this one and thought it might be a nice addition. From what I gathered online I think it may be a Palmetto Weevil; I would greatly appreciate if you could confirm this or let me know otherwise if it isn’t.
We agree that this is a Palmetto Weevil, Rhynchophorus cruentatus. There is both a black and a red form of this species. According to BugGuide, the grubs of Palmetto Weevils are considered delicacies in some parts of the world.
