Cionus tuberculosus (Scopoli, 1763)
Cionus tuberculosus is a distinctive weevil and very similar to Cionus scrophulariae, with the latter species probably being the most common across the county. There appear to have been no Nottinghamshire records, until we turned one up during a Bioblitz event at Attenborough Nature Reserve in August 2013. Since then, it has been found at several other sites, most recently at Shirebrook Pit Wood in April 2020.
