Another fly from my last trip which I need IDing please? This one is a lovely bright luminous green and feeding on bramble flowers during middle of a hot sunny day.....
Apologies for the poor quality picture....
Thanks in advance
Hi Higgy, looks like you have found another beautiful sawfly :)
May I suggest a Rhodogaster sp.?
Hello Again and thank you both once again for your replies.
After I posted this last night I did do a little further research and made it Rhogogaster Viridis??
I now think it is a Tenthredo mesomela, because of the dark stigma (it should be green in Rhogogaster).
You are absolutely right, Thanks you once again.
There's more to this identification lark than you first think!! I've been slowly going through my pictures and renaming things, looks like I've got plenty more to do!! :-)
