Tenthredinidae, Allantinae
Monostegia abdominalis (Fabricius), female. With the additional information, I am sure it is this species. Larvae feed on Lysimachia. The larvae pictured are not this species.

 
Great!
Looks like I did miss a vein...I had it filled in on the original but thought it might have been part of the hindwing so erased it.

Thanks for the help. I'll make an amendment to that tracing.

Moved from Common Sawflies.

Tenthredinidae
Looks interesting. However, need to see wing venation better.

 
I can probably trace the forewing ventation
from the other image if that helps. I can see the entire wing so it would be possible.

 
It might help -
and I'll try again.

 
Added a ventation tracing
Spent a long time on that, it should be nearly perfect. It was certainly difficult to make out some veins but the light reflection helped. I added another image.

On image 1 there is a link to some larvae which I took around the same time in the same place, they may not be related to this sawfly but you never know.
