sawflies on cherry blossoms

sawflies on cherry blossoms
Lena Park, Starke County, Indiana, USA
May 5, 2018
I saw quite a few of these small sawflies on cherry blossoms in an abandoned garden. These are old-fashioned 'pie cherries'. Though this shows two individuals, it was my impression they were likely the same kind of sawfly. FWIW they look to me to be similar to some in genus Hoplocampa.

I agree that Hoplocampa appears to be a distinct possibility.
