Can you please identify this bug?
I’ve found it sitting on a leaf, in the morning in 21/4/2014.
I couldn’t take any pictures, except for this one.
and thank you.
We wish your image had more detail. At first we thought this might be a Fly in the order Diptera, but the antennae look decidedly unflylike. We now believe this is a Hymenopteran, the order that includes bees and wasps, and we believe it might be a Sawfly. We wish we were able to tell if there is one pair of wings or two pairs. Perhaps one of our readers will be able to assist in this identification.
