Ceutorhynchus obstrictus, from here.

Belongs within: Ceutorhynchinae.

The Ceutorhynchini are a group of weevils with a scaly vestiture whose larvae are borers in the stems or crowns of herbaceous plants (Marvaldi & Lanteri 2005).

Characters (from Marvaldi & Lanteri 2005): Body vestiture usually not shining, with scales. Postocular lobes frequently present, partially covering the eye. Prementum exposed, visible in ventral view of rostrum. Mesepimeron strongly ascending. Front tibiae with grooming device on outer face consisting of short comb of setae, near tarsal articulation. Hind tibiae with apical comb of setae present, and with rudimentary uncus or lacking uncus. Pygidium exposed, not covered by elytra. Male genitalia with tegmen shorter than aedeagus, manubrium shorter than spiculum gastrale.
