hairless bumble bee?

Dear Bugman,
I have been collecting insects for about 9 years. I have been able to identify all of them except for this one. I found it on a log , and when I went to catch it, it did not try to fly away.

Elm Sawfly

Hi Aaron,
You have been having difficulty with your identification because this is not a Bumble Bee.  It is an Elm Sawfly, Cimbex americana, the largest North American Sawfly.
