There are several tiny, green, broad-snouted (weevils are usually known for their long snouts) Leaf Weevils common over much of the UK, especially southern UK. They all look quite similar with a stripey, "knitted" appearance and green colour, although the latter ranges from emerald and turquoise to brown-green and varies in the light. Most are in the Phyllobius/Polydrusus species.

Shown with thumbnail and clover head to give indication of size. On oak/clover, this is likely to be the Green Leaf Weevil - Phyllobius maculicornis, Phyllobius virideaeris or Polydrusus formosus, although Polydrusus sericeus and the Nettle Weevil - Phyllobius pomaceus look the same (the latter found mainly on nettles). Polydrusus pterygomalis is another common arboreal weevil but is browner green (less turquoise).
