Could you help me identify this insect?
(pictures taken in understory of primary forest near Kourou, French Guyana).
Thanks

Hello Olivier, nice to help you for a change!  8)

This is clearly some weevil (family Curculionidae). And by the looks of it, I'd say it is Cratosomus hoplites or a very close relative.

Cheers, Auke
