Your second spider is probably Argiope lobata.

As for the weevil, try Lixus pulverulentus.

Check Lixus pulverulentus and let me know what you think :)
Seed weevils have a very different shape. The species I mention above is very common in southern Portugal (even in urban habitats) and so probably in southern Iberia. The yellow dusty appearance is very typical.

I have checked it out and do think it could well be that.The only reason I said the seed weevil is it was the nearest I could find in the uk books I have .I have since realised by the name he has saying looking for non natives it more than likely is the one you said, I was just trying to give him a different option to look at.
