110906 Hazel Sawfly larvae
Description:

These were found growing on newly planted Hazel trees in our school grounds. At first we thought they were caterpillars. I think they might be Hazel Sawfly larvae. Perhaps someone could tell me if they will pupate and hatch into adults within a few weeks, or whether we will have to wait until the Spring.
