Tenthredo

One of 3 lemon and black sawflies, this could be T. notha, T. arcuata or T. brevicornis. They can only really be separated by detailed examination. Good luck with the key.

Many thanks Chris. If it can

Many thanks Chris. If it can be done with a binoc microscope I'll have a go.

Wrong sawfly key

Just settled down to try it and realised the key doesn't include Tenthredo !
