Moved from Sawflies.

Going to add a new guide page
Going to add a new guide page for this species....working on cleaning up the Sawfly larvae. Found

Arge sp.
Here's a picture that's tentatively identified as Arge coccinae. Here's the guide page with another Arge sp. larva.

A little hard to tell,
but if your larva has legs (it looks like it does to me) on the fourth and fifth segments it's most likely a sawfly larva. Caterpillars mostly have three pairs of legs in the front and then the next two segments have no legs.

Thanks Lynette
I have a couple of other shots of this. I'll see it I cand find them and check the legs.
