|Curculio nucum is very similar to the Acorn Weevil (Curculio glandium) but appears to be slightly larger and has a more bulky appearence. It often goes by the common name of the Long-snout Weevil, yet this is rather misleading as there are several other species having an equally long rostrum. This one was found in Sherwood Forest in mid-May 2007 and is probably a very common species throughout the county.|
