please could you id this bug for me. i am thinking it could be a wood wasp of some sort??
That looks to be a Xiphydria species, probably Xiphydria camelus, the Alder Woodwasp which is a type of Sawfly.
thanks for the prompt response. are the male and female of the species different in looks? i have done a web search for the species and its looks slightly different to the specimen i photographed.
