Notaris scirpi (Fabricius, 1792)
On the basis of just three records we have access to, Notaris scirpi is not a common Weevil in Nottinghamshire and is presently found only in the south-west of the county. This is a fairly large species, found at wetland sites on various species of Sedges, Rushes and Reeds. The county's recent records have come from Bentinck Banks, Moorbridge Pond in Bulwell (both records by Kirby, P.) and Attenborough NR, when it was found and photographed (below) by Tim Sexton in March 2017.
