|A common weevil and one of the first of the Phyllobius species to appear, usually in late April or early May. We found Phyllobius pyri to be common on Hawthorn and occasionally on Birch scrub at Sherwood Forest CP, appearing to favour certain bushes. Colouration of the adults we found, ranged from green, through to a rich copper colour. Presumably a common Nottinghamshire weevil.|
