Isochnus sequensi (Stierlin, 1894)
Generally an uncommon, small Weevil, Isochnus sequensi is predominantly found in the south-eastern and eastern counties of the UK. The larvae mine the leaves of Salix, forming distinctive circular blotch mines on the upper surface of the leaf, but the larvae of Isochnus foliorum produce identical mines. The adult in the photographs was found at Attenborough NR by Tim Sexton, who kindly allowed us to use his photographs here.
