White-fringed weevil

Naupactus leucoloma

Description:

Small Weevil, ~5mm in length. Striking lines running down the entire length, with a significant amount of hairs on the abdomen.

Habitat:

Unknown - located on a wooden fence

Notes:

I couldn't get a clear shot of the mouth, but I am assuming its of the Curculionidae family. Seems similar in appearance to other True Weevils, however I haven't seen many with this amount of 'hair'.
