No problem!! After looking at dozens I finally found one with the same markings! Amazing capture by the way. I have never seen these before.

Thank to all for helping to ID these animals :)

Those are super cool! I agree with carlabrauer - the gregarious nature of the larvae and the thorn mimicry definitely suggests sawfly.

Looks like some kind of sawfly larvae, but not sure which.
