Meadow Cranesbill Weevil Zacladus geranii (Paykull, 1800)
Widespread across many parts of the UK, especially in a line running from the Severn Estuary to The Wash, with records from Yorkshire and other parts of northern England into Cumbria. In Nottinghamshire, Zacladus geranii is probably quite common where Meadow Cranesbill grows in profusion. We found numbers of this Weevil at Eakring Meadows in June 2109, but the individual in the lower two photographs, was found at Attenborough NR in 2015 by Tim Sexton, who kindly allowed us to use his photographs.
