Acalles misellus (Boheman, 1844) 
Another rare, or at least rarely recorded weevil in Nottinghamshire. There are four recent county records (two occurring within the same 1km grid square) from the Proteus Square and Buck Gates areas forming part of the Sherwood Forest NNR (Denton, M.L. et al) and from the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust's Clarborough Tunnel NR (Kirby, P.) in the north-east of the county. All three of these records came in 2002 but one turned up more recently, in a leaf litter sample taken from the base of an over-mature Beech at Cuckney in March 2023 (Pendleton, T.A.).
