Danum Jungle Weevil

Weevil species (subfamily Entiminae) - Danum Valley, Malaysia

 

I spotted this large attractive weevil perched on this leaf as I was walking through the jungle one night. I tried to ID it down to species but the number of weevils is staggering, I'm fairly certain in that it belongs to the subfamily Entiminae but I have no idea beyond that, as the subfamily contains over 50 'tribes' of weevils. The jungles of Borneo harbor vast numbers of insects and weevils are certainly no exception.
