Honeysuckle Sawfly - Zaraea inflata (tentative) - Abia
Bass Lake, Skamania County, Washington, USA
May 18, 2006
Sawfly larva on orange honeysuckle, Lonicera ciliosa.

Abia americana. Abia inflate does not occur in the far western states.

Honeysuckle Sawfly
This is the guy that has been defoliating my
Lonicera involucrata the last week or so.
I live in San Francisco and the L.I. is in
my urban backyard.

The host plant puts this to genus: Zaraea, a member of the family Cimbicidae. Lovely image.

Thanks, it might be Zaraea inflata, Honeysuckle Sawfly.
