quite large weevil spotted on grass stem in wet meadow
No interactions present.
When I looked at this photo I thought it looked more like Notaris scirpa, but having now seen the weevil itself (thanks Mike!) it is definitely N. bimaculatus, as it has irregular 'bumps' or tubercles on the inside edge of the front tibiae.
A wetland species feeding on grasses, sedges and probably other monocotyledons.

Thanks, perhaps this is what has been reducing the amount of sedges rather than those experimental cutting treatments we have been applying. Well I have caught it now so Sonias experiments are safe.
