Weevil eating nettle

Observation - Weevil eating nettle - UK and Ireland. Description: Masses of these out munching nettles. Based on this link http://www.eakringbirds.com/eakringbirds6/insectsphyllobiusweevils.htm, this has to be a Phyllobius sp. as the antennae are inserted higher on the head and the insertion point is visible from above

Masses of these out munching nettles. Based on this link http://www.eakringbirds.com/eakringbirds6/insectsphyllobiusweevils.htm, this has to be a Phyllobius sp. as the antennae are inserted higher on the head and the insertion point is visible from above, unlike the only similar genus Polydrusus (whose antennae also look skinnier), but I don't know how to tell if this is P.pomaceus (Green nettle weevil) or another Nettle associated species P. maculicornis
