Moved from Stem Sawflies.

Trachelus tabidus. Also known as the black grain stem sawfly. An introduced species. I have records from NY to VA west to MI, OH. This is the first I've seen from New Hampshire. Could I get a few specimens?

I'd be happy to help. but it seems Trachelus tabidus isn't in the guide. Where should i put this pic for now?


Dr Smith will tell more
