Elm Sawfly, I reckon


Welcome to BugGuide!

 
Elm Sawfly!
Thank you so much, Ken. I could not find any leads and now I know why. How fascinating! It's mouth parts were intense. So, Elm trees? Guess I'll do some more digging. Don't know why he/she was on my cherry tree.
Thanks!

 
Their larvae feed on a variety of species.
