wasp - Tenthredo

wasp - Tenthredo
Yuba Pass, Sierra County, California, USA
June 26, 2006
Found in a wet meadow.

Moved from Tenthredo.

Tenthredinidae, Tenthredininae
Correct for Tenthredo.

Moved from Common Sawflies.

True sawfly (Tenthredinidae)
This nice rusty sawfly belongs most likely to the genus Tenthredo itself, at least in a broad sense.

I agree
it looks like genus Tenthredo

Thanks for the help Nick and Richard!!

This is actually a sawfly (suborder Symphyta), as evidenced by the broad attachment between the thorax and abdomen. That's about all I can tell you since my expertise lies with the other suborder (Apocrita).
