And if anyone has an idea what species of beetle this is, I’d be interested to know (just for curiosity’s sake). This is one place where Google is of no help at all. When will be able to submit a picture as a search query?
UPDATE: There is TinEye, but my search failed because TinEye doesn’t search the content of the image. It tries to find the exact same image on the internet. I can use TinEye to check if someone uses the beetle in a derivative work, and whether I’ve been credited or not — so still nifty.

Closest I could come to this is the Large Pine Weevil, Hylobius abietis, one of the most destructive eaters of buds and tender bark of conifer shoots.(Readers Digest-Living World of Animals)
