Sawfly larva - Phymatocera

Sawfly larva - Phymatocera
Lake County, Illinois, USA

Moved

Tenthredinidae, Blennocampinae
Phymatocera sp. These feed on Smilacina (I think this plant genus has changed names.)

any host info?
may prove critical for ID

 
Yes, actually
Now that I think about it, I can take it down to one of two genera: Smilacina or Polygonatum. They both grow around here, and I don't recall which one this guy was on.
