Phyllobius glaucus (Scopoli, 1763)
One of the rarest of Nottinghamshire's Phyllobius Weevils, Phyllobius glaucus with around half a dozen historical records. It still remains very much an uncommon beetle over much of the county, but is reported to be fairly common along the Trent Valley (per Adrian Dutton). Away from the Trent, there are records from the Idle Valley NR in 1998 (Kirby, P.), Lady Lee Quarry, Worksop in 1999 (Kirby, P.), Misson Carr in 2004 (Williams, H) and Clumber Park in 2008 (Binding, A. and Binding, A.E.) and Cuckney Hay Wood in May 2018 (Pendleton, T.A. and Pendleton, D.T.).
