A Provisional Checklist to the Curculionoidea of Cheshire (VC58), South Lancashire (VC59) and West Lancashire (VC60)

This checklist covers all species in the Curculionoidea (currently 634 U.K. species as of 2020) in Cheshire, South Lancashire, and West Lancashire, superseding work by Sharp (1908 & 1917). It is derived in most part from data supplied to the National Curculionoidea Recording Scheme organised by Adrian Fowles. The data have been provided by a wide range of individual recorders, county recorders, local record centres, and has been extracted from the literature and various collections. To this I have added some very recent records from my own efforts, as well as those from colleagues active in the area, which have not yet filtered through to the national scheme.
