I sorry but I don't believe that is an Apion species. The 'nose' is far too short and its covered in gold pubescence. I'm not a coleopterist, so I refrain from making a revised ID (and willing to accept that I may be wrong), but am hoping that an expert will step in to advise.
I don't know what it is, but it is not a weevil and it does look interesting. If no one on i-Spot can identify it, I think it would be worth posting the picture on the British Beetles Yahoo group.
Do you have the specimen?
I too wondered about the 'short' proboscis, and the fact that it is more gold than 'orangey.' I'm afraid I don't have the specimen, John.
