Hazel leaves rolled like cigars; Apoderus coryli ?

IMGP5009.JPG

 

I think it most likely is the beetle Apoderus cortyli which has made the "cigars" I found at hazel trees. Or  could it be other incects that has rolled the leaves? The picture was taken end of May this year in western Norway.

      I've also read this following information previously.  Two kinds of weevil lay their eggs in hazel leaves, Rhynchites betuleti which rolls the whole leaf, and Apoderus coryli which rolls half the leaf.  I appear to have A. coryli locally in the UK since hazel leaves are present which are cut along the centre line and only the hanging half rolled.
