Snout Nosed Weevil Fossil

This image shows an a snout beetle or weevil insect fossil of the Order Coleoptera, Family Curculionidae found in the Florissant Formation of Teller County, Colorado, USA. It dates to the Eocene Epoch of the Paleogene Period. Thanks to Kenny for the image. It is possible this one might need some more prep work to reveal more of the fossil.

I found one of these back in June. It is posted here:
