Agree with Episomus sp., we can trust Michael's ID. I think it is even the same species as the one from Albert.
Good job, Bros!

Yup, this weevil is from the genus Episomus... So many species in Malaysia, so it hard to ID to species level....

Not really, it is only the subfamily, I am not sure if we can get down to genus/species level.
