Snout Beetle (weevil)
Myrmex lineatus


gray stirped beetle
I found one of these in 2009 on Antelope Island but was unable to get a good photo.  At least I got a few good shots
this year in the same place.

I can't find anything about what they feed on but the only two I've seen on the island obviously prefer rabbitbrush.
