Sawfly Larvae - Yellow and Green with Black Head - Macremphytus

Sawfly Larvae - Yellow and Green with Black Head - Macremphytus
Baton Rouge, Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center, East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, USA
September 2, 2016
Size: about 3/4 inch long
This is an update to a submission I made on 8/28/16 which can be found here:
Sawfly larvae on roughleaf dogwood.
In these pictures the larvae are on the same plant, on a different branch, about 2 feet away from where the 8/28 pictures were taken.
In this view you can see the number of prolegs - 7 pair by my count.
