Pentarthrum huttoni (Wollaston, 1854)
One of a group of several similar, very small weevils found in rotting wood and occasionally pests in houses, where they bore into timber. In late January and early February 2011, we had several of these appear in our bathroom, eventually being identified as Pentarthrum huttoni. This is a widespread species across the UK, sometimes causing structural damage if infestations are heavy.
