Tenthredinidae, Willow Sawfly larvae, lateral - Euura ventralis
Saylorville WMA, Boone County, Iowa, USA
July 13, 2021
July 7, 2021: sawfly larvae collected Cottonwood and Willow by M. Leoschke. Since I had no easy access to either Cottonwood or Willow, also set up a rearing jar with Quaking Aspen, Populus tremuloides.


July 22, 2021: 3 adult sawflies, 1 Caloptilia stigmatella


July 24, 2021: 3 adults sawflies

Batch rearing.

Success with rearing sawflies!
Impressive! Congratulations!
