Male. Females are more orange and have simple antennae. Larvae on morning glory.

A double match...
Argid Sawfly, yes. Also, while mine was actually on a blackberry leaf, there's lot of wild morning glory in the immediate vicinity. I cannot find a match beyond Family Argidae, however. Maybe someone else will be able to ID a genus at some point. Thanks for the ID help. (Marvin)
