Palmetto wevil?
Found this BIG wevil (1.5"-2") on the steps as I was leaving work today. I had no idea wevils got so big! I saw the Palmetto Wevil on your site and it looks like it might be the same thing with slightly different markings. Maybe it is a female? Thanks!

Hi Kara,
This is certainly a Palmetto Weevil. Some specimens are black, some reddish brown, and some, like yours, are mottled.
