Charagmus griseus (Fabricius, 1775)
Charagmus griseus seems to be rather scarce in Nottinghamshire and generally confined to the Sherwood Forest area. Typically a species of coastal dunes, there are a few inland records on the NBN atlas. The rostrum is longer and more narrow than the similar Sitona weevils (Charagmus griseus was formerly known as Sitona griseus) and the contrast between upper and underside is striking. This antennae-less adult, was actually found whilst photographing another species, on Budby South Forest in late March 2011.
