Tychius meliloti (Stephens, 1831)
This small Weevil, is another species which probably suffers from under recording. Found on Melilotus officionalis (has a variety of common names including Yellow Sweet Clover and Yellow Melilot) Tychius meliloti is probably a more common Weevil than the distribution map suggests. At the moment, the only record we know of is from Attenborough NR, where it was found and photographed by Tim Sexton in 2015.
