Black vine weevil or Taxus weevil (Otiorhynchus sulcatus).

I first made a deep stack but the planthairs were very distracting, so deeper parts are left out of the re-stack.

In case you are wondering what leaf she's sitting on, it's from an Oleaster (Eaeagnus ebbingei).

Giving away it is a staged studio shot, this weevil seldom can be found on this type of plant.

She's a serious pest and more interested in strawberry, blackberry, blueberry, and cranberry plants.

Also azalea, rhododendron, hemlock, forsythia, begonia, cyclamen, fuchsia, primrose, rhododendron, azalea, hemlock, euonymus and many other plants used around the home.
