Hello, here is another challenge for you!
This time they are weevils I think.

Dear Cicada Lover,
We believe these are mating, native Little Leaf Notcher Weevils, Artipus floridanus, based on images posted to BugGuide. We do not want to discount that they might be the very similar looking Yellow-Headed Ravenous Weevil or Sri Lanka Weevil, Myllocerus undecimpustulatus, an introduced species also found in Florida and profiled on BugGuide.
Update: October 25, 2015
We have received a comment that these are most likely Citrus Root Weevils in the genus Pachnaeus, and there are supporting images on BugGuide.
