Found this pair on a eureka lemon tree leaf. Any idea what they are?

These are weevils in the subfamily Entiminae (short-snouted/broad-nosed weevils). I cannot be certain from your image, but this one is a possibility: http://www.ipm.ucdavis.edu/PMG/GARDEN/PLANTS/INVERT/fullerrosebeetle.html

Thank you. I went out and took another look and I'm certain you correctly identified it as a Fuller Rose Beetle. The black eyes were set widely apart and the snout was not sharply pointed down. The coloration is identical to the picture on the link you provided.
