Elm Sawfly larva

Cimbex americana


Yellowish or greenish white larvae with a dorsal black stripe which are vigorous defoliators chiefly of elm and willow.


Wooded portion of wildlife habitat yard.


These were new to me, and as so often happens, once you see one, you find more. I came across a half dozen of these on or around our deck.
