Sawflies and wood wasps in and around Torphins Wood, Scotland
Torphins is a village in upper Deeside, Aberdeenshire Scotland. There is nothing particularly special about the wood, it is a mixed species coniferous/deciduous wood, so things found there can probably be found in many other Scottish, British or even European woods.
Rhodogaster viridis, adult sawfly
Quite common, larvae eat a wide variety of leaves. Adults fly from May to August.
