Large weevil observed underneath piece of discarded wood within grassland area. Length approx. 15mm (see Five-pence coin size reference). I initially thought that this individual had perished given in-situ observation - Photos 2 & 3, but eventually ambled off at a measured pace. The comparatively large size and “tessellated pattern of elytra suggest Liophloeus tessulatus – would welcome advice
