Flew off as soon as I tried to get closer so this is the only shot I got!
Thinking Abia lonicera with those yellow legs...
Can anyone confirm please?
No interactions present.
I think that iSpot has this species as Zaraea lonicerae. Either way, I think lonicerae is correct, rather than lonicera.
I shall not enter it myself, as I cannot comment on the ID...not a species I know.
My Flickr photos...
Thank you both! Seems A. sericea might be more likely but really can't name this with certitude so shall record as Abia sp!
Yes Abia sp. is safest for sure. They're quite tricky and I got my first few UK ones ID'd by a UK sawfly expert and a recent European one ID'd on a German hymenoptera site www.hymis.de That one tuned out to be A. aurulenta, an Alpine species which the identifier has since posted on a European sawfly blog.
