gray weevil
When my friend Ruth and I spotted this little insect on a building in Snow Canyon
State Park, we thought it was a tick. It looked very small and flat. We were
surprised to find out it was a weevil.  © Carol Davis, 6-11-2011

There is a sight on the Internet called arizonensis.org that tells a little about this
weevil and its host plant.
