Sawfly? - Hemichroa crocea

Sawfly? - Hemichroa crocea
Charlestown, Kent County, Rhode Island, USA
August 19, 2005
I'm guessing that this is a species of Sawfly. It was feeding on Alder leaves at the edge of a small pond.

ID help will be appreciated.



Nice shot - and nice addition!
Googling alder sawfly brings up a bunch of similar images labelled Hemichroa crocea - Striped Alder Sawfly. Looks like we have a new species for the guide. I've made a guide page : )

I nevr expected that I'd be adding a new species to this site. I'm honored!!! Thanks for writing Hannah!!!! ... and thanks for the ID help.
