Glocianus distinctus (Brisout, Ch., 1870)
Rather patchily distributed over the southern-half of the UK, Glocianus distinctus is not a common Weevil and is usually associated with Cat's Ear (Hypochaeris radicata). In Nottinghamshire, we know of records from a survey of the former Annesley Bentinck Colliery in 2007 (Kirby, P.) and more recently from Attenborough NR in 2016, where it was found and photographed by reserve manager Tim Sexton. Our thanks go to Tim, for allowing us to use his photograph.
