Sawfly? - Cephus cinctus

Sawfly? - Cephus cinctus
Colorado Springs, El Paso County, Colorado, USA
July 16, 2009
Size: ~8-9mm
Before I got in close to this insect, I thought it was a small syrphid, but it obviously has 2 sets of wings and long antennae. It looks similar to some sawflies in my field guide, but I'm not sure how small they are. I'm sure someone knows what it is. It also posed really well, since it was dead. :)
