This is the cracking Sea Knotgrass (above - look at how glaucous it is!) that I ticked at Sandy Point on Hayling Island at the weekend. Thanks to Tony Davis for this one and for the closely related and not quite so glaucous Ray's Knotgrass which we saw at Brown Down.
Also at Brown Down was another one of these weird weevils, Lixus scabricollis (below), which I have seen at Rye Harbour. This one was on Sea Purslane. Also on Hayling Island was the smart weevil Mecinus circulatus (Nb) at the roots of Marram.
