Wattle Pig Weevil, we believe

Dear Aaron,
This is a Broad Nosed Weevil, and we believe we have identified it as a Wattle Pig Weevil in the genus
Leptopius thanks to the Brisbane Insect Website.  You can also find images on Project Noah.

    This is indeed a Wattle Pig – the greater number of lumps and spines on its back help identify it as Leptopius maleficus. I live in an area where these guys are quite common, so I hope this helps!
