Need help identifying this tiny insect.

Hello all,
I just signed up for Garden Web. Previous posts have solved a couple bug mysteries for me, but this little guy has me mystified. It has a large snout, and was munching on some white flowers in my garden. Anybody know what it might be? The following photos are taken with a microscope. One of the photos is with a tire valve cap for scale reference. Thanks!

Looks like a weevil. Not sure what kind.
