griseus seems to be rather scarce in Nottinghamshire
and generally confined to the Sherwood Forest area.
Typically a species of coastal dunes, there are a few
inland records on the NBN atlas. The rostrum is longer
and more narrow than the similar Sitona weevils
(Charagmus griseus was formerly known as Sitona
griseus) and the contrast between upper and
underside is striking. This antennae-less adult, was
actually found whilst photographing another species, on
Budby South Forest in late March 2011.
