Sitona puncticollis (Stephens, 1831)
Sitona puncticollis has a fairly widespread distribution across much of the southern-half of the UK. As is often the case, there is very little information on this beetles' Nottinghamshire status, but there is certainly an historical record from Sherwood Forest. There seem to be no modern records, so the one found and photographed by Tim Sexton at Attenborough NR in August 2016, may well be the first record for VC56 (Nottinghamshire) in many years. Once again, our thanks go to Tim for allowing us to use his photographs.
