Ceutorhynchus cochleariae (Marsham, 1802)
Another very small species, whose size can be gauged by the single Cuckoo Flower bud it is sat on. Found at Attenborough NR in April 2020 by reserve manager Tim Sexton and his son Jake, this appears to be a first Nottinghamshire record of Ceutorhynchus cochleariae. With its preferred foodplant being  common in meadows (though meadows themselves are not common) throughout the county, it would be logical to expect it to be more widespread.
