Zarucco Duskywing caterpillar ? - Nematus abbotii

Zarucco Duskywing caterpillar ? - Nematus abbotii
Barling, Sebastian County, Arkansas, USA
April 23, 2014
Numerous caterpillars on Honey Locust. Duskywing was noted on 04/11/2014 ovipositing on this locust. Two caterpillars selected for rearing.

Moved

Tenthredinidae, Nematinae
Probably a late feeding stage of Nematus abbotii (Kirby). Earlier stages are almost entirely black. It is not Nematus tibialis, and the picture shown below (274507) is not Nematus tibialis.

 
Thanks
Many small black larvae on this locust.

Moved from ID Request.

No idea on species...
This is some kind of sawfly larva: http://bugguide.net/node/view/112/bgimage

 
Thanks
Sure looks similar and chewing away.

 
That leaf looks more like
Black Locust to me. If so, most likely Locust Sawfly larva?


 
Thanks Yurika
Black locust it is.
