Stem Sawfly - Cephus cinctus

Stem Sawfly - Cephus cinctus
Lewiston, Cache County, Utah, USA
July 4, 2010
Size: 7-8mm
Looks like a Wheat Stem Sawfly to me. Want to verify this and add Utah to the places found list.

Moved from Stem Sawflies.

Lucky guess
It is the Wheat Stem Sawfly, Identification by Ryan Davis, Utah State University.

Moved from ID Request.

So I found about 4 of these in a wheat field and jumped to the conclusion that they must be Wheat Stem Sawflies... Now I can only say I would put it in the Cephus genus.
