Here's the link to my iSpot posting last week of this sawfly http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/273409 which gives a link to the Hymenoptera site where it was IDd. It's been provisionally categorised as nationally rare in the UK (pRDB3 category) but is recorded in SW UK on the NBN gateway, which doesn't seem to link to iSpot for this species. http://data.nbn.org.uk/gridMap/gridMap.jsp?allDs=1&srchSpKey=NBNSYS00000...

thanks Nick. Is nigra not UK after all then? I'll look at this closely at bit later so I can justify any agreement
latest pics and diptera videos
nigra is a Uk species, but looks different with less obvious abdominal banding. For the Balmers it was between xanthostoma and linearis and the restricted head marking led to xanthstoma
