Brookside Gardens, Montgomery County, Maryland, USA
August 5, 2019
Size: body ~4.5mm
Looks like Eriocampa juglandis. Larvae of that species are fairly common in this park but I haven't found an adult before.

Moved from Common Sawflies.

Not Eriocampa; Heterarthrinae
Not Eriocampa - a heterarthrine, I believe. The glare off the wings makes the venation hard to discern, but I think this is Caliroa.

I played around with the dorsal photo trying to bring out the venation but the photo just isn't good enough
