Raspberry sawfly, Monophadnoides rubi - Monophadnoides rubi
Pawnee E, Harrison County, Missouri, USA
June 29, 2009
Raspberry sawfly, now called Monophadnoides rubi, from a sweep net sample.
"A number of genera have similar spines, but not so long and branched as these. In M. rubi, the spines on the subspiracular lobe (second row from bottom) have the anterior spine bifurcate and the posterior spine simple; the spines on the surpedal lobe (bottom row) have the anterior spine simple, and the posterior one bifurcate." Description and identification by Dave Smith.

Very nice
Moved from Monophadnoides.
According to Discover Life this species is also present in Europe. Do you know whether it is an introduced species here?

 
Probably not introduced.
Its difficult to tell if some are introduced or truly Holarctic. This has been in N. Amer. for a long time and is widespread, coast to coast; some of the first records are 1845 or so. If introduced, it must have come over with the early settlers.
