Rhinusa antirrhini (Paykull, 1800)
Frequently described as the commonest of several small Weevils found on Common Toadflax (Linaria vulgaris), Rhinusa antirrhini seems to be much under-recorded in Nottinghamshire and is likely to be present, even on the smallest stands of the hostplant. The one illustrated, was found at the entrance to Warsop Main Pit Top at Warsop Vale in August 2017.
