|Based on the lack of modern records, Cleopus
pulchellus is an uncommon weevil in Nottinghamshire.
An attractively marked species, it is one of several
quite similar weevils found on Figwort (Scrophularia
nodosa) but is without doubt the most uncommon. The
only modern records we are aware of, are from Hoveringham
and the one below, which was found and photographed at
Attenborough NR by assistant reserve manager Tim Sexton
in early May 2018. Our thanks go to Tim for providing us
with his images.
