Polydrusus cervinus (Linnaeus, 1758)
Probably a fairly common weevil of a variety of foliage around Sherwood Forest NNR. We found both these adult Polydrusus cervinus on a small Birch in the early part of May 2009 and 2010. Polydrusus weevils are very similar to the Phyllobius group, but the main difference between the two is that the antennal insertions are on the side of the rostrum and not visible from above.
