It was found on a growing pit of one of my Nepenthes (the brown, not the green one). With 1cm. Photo – iPhone4 with a magnifying glass and pacience.
Thank you for your time.

Dear Aloysio,
This is some species of Weevil in the superfamily
Curculionoidea.  Weevils are the most plentiful beetles on the planet.  We will attempt a species identification for you and perhaps one of our readers will be successful in identifying this timy Weevil.

Thank you very much.
And I was here, thinking that maybe it could be a rare especimen.

Hello again Aloysio,
It may be a rare specimen, but we couldn’t say for sure until the species is identified.
