Polydrusus pterygomalis (Boheman, 1840)
Fairly widespread across the middle part of Nottinghamshire and probably under-recorded to a certain degree, Polydrusus pterygomalis is one of a number of very similar green weevils. It favours broadleaved trees and shrubs such as Elm and Hazel and it is best looked for by beating foliage. Most records come from woodlands situated on heavier soils.
