Thryogenes scirrhosus (Gyllenhal, 1836) 
Although records are widely spaced, this is an uncommon weevil across much of the southern UK. Found and photographed at Attenborough NR by Tim Sexton in May 2019, seems to be the first occurrence of Thryogenes scirrhosus in Nottinghamshire, and we are grateful to Tim, for providing us with his photographs. It favours waterside vegetation, where it can be found on plants such as Common Club Rush (Schoenoplectus lacustris) and Branched Burr-reed (Sparganium erectum).
