Any suggestions for this small beetle. Just dropped on to my laptop in my shed/office. Is it just Phyllobious pomaceus that has lost its scales?

Looks like a Vine Weevil, say goodbye to some of your delicate plants in the garden.

The head doesn't look the right shape for a Phyllobius. Some Sitona species look similar, but I'm no expert. Certainly not a vine weevil.

Sitona lineatus was another possibility as shown here.

Yes, it looks rather similar and lineatus is a common species. But there may be other possibilities.
