Ceutorhynchus constrictus (Marsham, 1802)
With records scattered widely over the southern half of the UK, the diminutive Ceutorhynchus constrictus appears to have not been recorded in Nottinghamshire, before we found this one on the flowers of Garlic Mustard (Alliaria petiolata) at Clipstone Old Quarter in May 2017. With its preferred foodplant being exceptionally common in all parts of the county, it would be logical to expect this Weevil to be fairly widespread.
