„shiny metallic bug“

from the gallery of Craig Lapsley

This shiny metallic weevil is a member of the curculiondae family.
Its shiny shell reflects green or blue depending upon the angle of the light.
It is also called a snout weevil because of its long trunk or nose. The nose even has two little arms towards the end.
It is approx 5 or 6 mm in size
