Green Sawfly - Rhogogaster

Green Sawfly - Rhogogaster
Duck Lake area, 3 miles north of Westwood; elevation about 5300ft, Lassen County, California, USA
May 27, 2008
Could this be a Genus Rhogogaster sawfly? Any help with ID is very much appreciated - Thanks!

Tenthredinidae, Tenthredininae
OK for Rhogogaster sp. Two species have this similar coloration and would need to see specimens.

Moved from Common Sawflies.

For what it's worth...
Rhogogaster looks right to this non expert. From what I gather, the specimen would have to be examined for a species-level ID.
