Ceutorhynchus obstrictus (Marsham, 1802)
This small and inconspicuous Weevil is probably common throughout the county, but the records we have come from a band running across central Nottinghamshire. Ceutorhynchus obstrictus is found on Brassicas, giving rise to the common name of Cabbage Seed Weevil. It is widespread in the UK, with a patchy distribution.
