Attenborough NR in August 2016 (Sexton, T.), which looks certain to be
the first county record. Polydrusus formosus is
a Nationally notable A species and there are few records
from counties adjacent to Nottinghamshire. Since the
Attenborough record, there have been records from Stanton-on-the-Wolds
and Netherfield Lagoons (Smith, P.) and
the ones below, found in May 2020 at King's Mill Reservoir and at
Vexation Lane near Rufford in July 2021.
In the field Polydrusus are similar to Phyllobius
weevils, but the main difference between the two is
that the antennal insertions are on the side of the
rostrum and they are not visible from above.
