How to tell Rhodobaenus tredecimpunctatus and R. quinquepunctatus apart...

Ironweed Curculio versus Cocklebur Weevil

from borisb
tip of elytra black (extent variable) = Rhodobaenus quinquepunctatus
tip red = Rhodobaenus tredecimpunctatus

"black tip" in quinquepunctatus may be reduced to margin, leaving a subapical spot isolated. This form is a look-alike.
