Weevil from Central Florida

Lake county, Central Florida. 

June, oak forest,

92°F. , many non-native philodendron, Anthurium, and colocasia. 

Unfortunately I only have one photo.  

Thank you,

Dear Frederick

This is a Weevil, a member of the largest family of insects in the world.  We believe based on images found on BugGuide (https://bugguide.net/node/view/5274) that this is a Leaf Rolling Weevil, 

Homoeolabus analis.  

According to BugGuide:  “hosts: various oaks (Quercus spp.)” and “causes no significant harm to the tree; no control recommended”
