Acalles ptinoides (Marsham, 1802)
A very small and inconspicuous weevil with Nationally notable B status. There are seemingly few recent Nottinghamshire records, all concentrated within the Sherwood Forest area, including Oak Tree Heath (Mansfield) in 2008. We recorded this one on the trunk of a large Oak at Clipstone Old Quarter, after dark in May 2016.
