Solomon's Seal Sawfly

Looks like the ones I used to get on garden Solomon's Seal, all round the edges of the leaves with their tails up. Where did you find it?

I've come across similar

I've come across similar looking ones feeding on Yellow Flag Iris, sometimes reducing them to tatters, but this year there were very few of them about.

Sawfly larvae

It was under the leaves of some radishes, which were growing under a cloch, so, nicely protected and warm. I didn't see any damage to the radish leaves, so don't know what it's been eating.
