Its hanging on a hair inside a small plastic cup so I have turned the photo around. Was more greyish brown when alive and about a quarter of an inch in length.I have tried to identify it online but am very confused and need to know for definite.
Where I live is surrounded by woods - but this was inside the house, so I am a bit worried!!!!
A positive identification would be much appreciated.
Many thanks Mike - its good to know that this weevil possibly prefers acorns to humans!
My garden backs on to part of Sherwood Forest which is mostly Sycamore,Silver Birch and you've guessed it- Oak trees! There is a lot of wildlife around here,most of which I am happy to live alongside as it generally stays outside!
Very relieved that it wasnt anything more sinister!
Thank you so much, Bee
ps It was not my intention to kill it - it just died!
