Weevil, small green, Little Paxton, 2011-05-17 001
Description:

Actually it's on some nettles close to scrub. It looks like a weevil to me, perhaps polydrusus?

Difficult angle

The angle of the photograph makes it difficult to see the insertion of the antennae, but it looks more lke a Phyllobius than a Polydrusus.

It seems to tick the boxes for P. pomaceus (femoral teeth just visble, colour of legs and antennae).
