A sawfly larvae platoon. There is always one that still didn't learn the difference between left and right...
WOW what amazing colors. Good spotting Sergio!
You sure find good insects Sergio!
Martin, as a second thought, it is wise to have someone watching your back...
Your text descibe the situation in perfection :-) congrats and thanks for sharing
Love the purple!
J, if I know few about insects, I am absolutely ignorante about plants. But I know where those larvae are, and I'll try to discover. To you and MayraSpringmann, Phillip Torres, EnvUnlimited, DespinaTsafetopoulou and Martin, thank you.
Awesome spotting, Sergio! Do you know what plants they were feeding on?
Will he evolve into something new or just get eaten? This is a terrific spotting Sergio. Larvae of hymenoptera are often called maggots but sawfly 'grubs' are free living and quite unique. I would call these rainbow worms :)
Lol! great spotting :D
@Phillip Torres: :-)
I like the fact that your signature has the same coloration as the larvae!
This is just... Magnificent! Excellent shots Sergio!
Que lindas cores!
