The black between the eyes and on the last couple of tarsomeres was particularly noticeable.
The fly was calmly sitting on a Hepatica leaf, until the dog ran up.

This was quite large for a duskywing skipper. I think it is a female Juvenal's, but can't say for sure it is not Horace's. I got no view or photo of the under surface of the wings.

Adult sawfly emerged. I am hoping that there might be enough detail for a Genus identification. I realize they are hard to identify from pictures. I have kept both the leaf and the specimen in case they are of interest.
