Lixus angustatus is a species of weevil found in Europe (including the Iberian Peninsula) and the Mediterranean Basin.[1][2] The general size of the weevil is about 5.5 mm. The coloration of the weevil is brown and green.[3]

Hastings Country Park produced the last British records of this species and it is now considered to no longer breed in Britain.[4]
