Too many Neodiprion look alik
Too many Neodiprion look alike, but this is not Neodiprion sertifer - this hasn't been recorded that far south.

 
Thanks
I'll leave it at the genus level.

#11444- Conifer Sawfly
There are 3 doz sp. of conifer sawflies that feed on needles. Belong to the Family: Diprionidae of the Hymenoptera. These are larvae of a Neodiprion species. The pure green body and black head are typical of the European Pine Sawfly N. sertifer but I'm not familiar with all the other species. (not really familiar with sertifer either!)
