Cionus tuberculosus (Scopoli, 1763)
Cionus tuberculosus is a distinctive weevil and very similar to Cionus scrophulariae, the latter species being very common across most of Nottinghamshire. This one was swept from low foliage during an invertebrate survey of farmland, in Worcestershire in July 2013. At the time, we knew of no Nottinghamshire records, but eventually turned one up during an event at Attenborough Nature Reserve in August 2013.
