found this in my freinds back yard have no idea about bugs all we know is it only seams to move with its front 4 legs.
This is the larva of a Sawfly, a nonstinging group of insects in the order that contains Bees and Wasps. We believe it is a Longtailed Sawfly in the Subfamily Pterygophorinae according to the Brisbane Insect website where they are described as: “Larvae in this subfamily feed on leaves of different native plants. They have six or more pairs of prolegs and a “tail” on the last segment. They do not aggregate in large group. They feed actively in small group during the day.”
