Identification Notes: When disturbed by photography the sawfly moved between two small patches of shrubby regrowth about 20m apart. Although of different species (Ash regrowth vs. a clump of Traveller's Joy and Dogwood) they were of similar size (about 1.5m across and 0.6m high) colour, tone, morphology (multi-stemmed regrowth) and even leaf shape (Ash and Clematis).
