Sawfly larvae



Spotted this during my 2 hours walk in the forest park. They "shoot" out yellow fluid when I poked with a stick. This might be a defensive warning. Please help me to determine what will these little guys might be?

ZarinaSak, these larvae are actually those of Spitfires' related to wasps. I don't think they are appropriate for the "Butterflies & Moths" mission.
