Pear and cherry slug sawfly larvae
Observed: 21st September 2009 By: GeorgeWS

Slimy, gelatinous, slug-like appearance. Closer inspection reveals a distinct head, sets of legs and the more posterior pseudo-legs (similar to caterpillars and other larvae). These specimens were found on the top surface of cherry tree leaves but others have been seen on pear tree leaves.
