Unidentified sawfly larvae on maple

Here's another note based on sorting unidentified sawfly larvae in the BG gallery by host plant, this time maple (Acer). Three postings:

Probably Sugar Maple (Acer saccharum), Ontario and Pennsylvania.

Probably Mountain Maple (A. spicatum) or Striped Maple (A. pensylvanicum), New Brunswick.

As with my notes for other species (listing in "See Also" section), I am providing these sorted images in hopes that Dr. Dave Smith or other experts will find them useful, possibly leading to identifications.
