Cryptocephalus labiatus (Linnaeus, 1761)
Click here for Cryptocephalus labiatus ovae and larval images
......
A tiny leaf beetle, considerably smaller than the more well known (but much rarer) Cryptocephalus coryli. We have just one historical record of C. labiatus for the Sherwood Forest NNR, dating from 1914. These were found to be quite common on Birch scrub in one section of Budby South Forest at the end of June 2009. We have since recorded this beetle at Warsop Main Pit Top (on Sallow) Warsop Wood (on Wych Elm) and Clipstone Old Quarter (on Birch and Oak).
