Pachyrhinus lethierryi (Desbrochers, 1875)
A small green weevil, which looks very much like either a Phyllobius or one of the green Poyldrusus weevils. Pachyrhinus lethierryi was first found in the UK in 2003 and has spread rapidly north since. Beating the commonly planted conifer Thuja occidentalis, or finding a green weevil indoors, may well reveal that this weevil is now found across much of Nottinghamshire and further records seem to be confirming that.
