Bembidion is a genus of Ground Beetle. They are usually half the size or less of this insect, have comparatively narrow bodies and far are less rounded and "dumpy" than this beetle. They also lack the narrow pointed "nose" or rostrum, which is a charactaristic of weevils. See for a typical Bembidion "shape".

Hi on basis of your link certainly not Bembidion,photo I based id on not anything like your link.this insect was in a bog not in a mile of any kind of garden so I don"t know if Vine weevil is likely,or are they spreading into wild?
