Regarded as 'scarce' in the UK, this fairly large weevil feeds on the fungus 'King Alfreds' Cakes'. This one was beaten from a rot-hole in a felled Sycamore at Banstead Wood. Its' specific name is Platyrhinus resinosus.
We are a self-funded group of volunteers looking after our local countryside in Banstead Wood and Chipstead Valley. We extend a warm welcome to those who would like to help maintain this important green space for the benefit of everyone. Here you will find details of WoodChips weekly tasks and activities. Check back soon to see what we're up to!
