Tenthredo arcuata (Förster, 1771)
Sawflies are notoriously difficult to identify and tend to be avoided by many entomologists. There are similar looking species to Tenthredo arcuata, so correct identification has to be made carefully. Due to the lack of interest in recording Sawflies locally, there tend to be few modern Nottinghamshire records of most species. The one photographed, was found near Edwinstowe in August 2017.
