Tuesday 18th May - Unknown Weevil at Jone's Pit.
Confirmed: Cionus scrophulariae (L.). Wilf, our Weevil Recorder comments, 'There are 6 Cionus species found in Britain; an attractive and fairly distinctive genus. Four species are particularly associated with figworts (Scrophularia spp.), including this one as you can tell by the name. It is widely distributed and fairly common, sometimes also occurring on Buddleia.'
