Thanks for the info, Martin. I asked because these "popeye" beetles are known for loving olive oil... :-)

Thank you Sergio.
This was found on Eucalyptus. Our only olives are in backyards or farms in this country.
It is not a true weevil but in the ''leaf rolling weevil'' family featuring broad shoulders and non-elbowed antennae.
