Conservation of British species of weevil (ENRR110)

The characteristics, particularly zoogeography, of the species of Cathormiocerus Schoenherr are briefly described. Ecological investigations undertaken in 1993 are outlined. Four of the five British species of the genus were found and studied. The achievements of the work are assessed in relation to its objectives. Accounts of each species are given. The distribution, status, habitat, information from the 1993 survey, and conservation are described. A general account of the conservation of species in the genus is provided. It is concluded that, although the threats to the species are well understood, more work is needed on details of the species’ distribution and ecology in order to evaluate these threats. Proposals are included for future work on conserving the species. A full bibliography of the British Cathormiocerus is provided.
