Observations in the Field:

Sawfly Spotting

September 19, 2018 – This was a cool find. I’ve been In the tree care industry for a pretty long time and I’ve only seen these Dogwood Sawflies a few times. In large numbers, they can do significant damage. However, in the Northeast they are hardly seen due to the harsh winters. Sawfly larvae have chewing mouth parts that leave holes in the leaves. Some species of Sawfly leave a very characteristic feeding damage called windowpaning. Basically, they eat the green part of the leaf, leaving a fine layer of clear leaf tissue. Older damage browns and can sometimes look like a disease lesion. The Dogwood Sawfly, Macremphytus sp., is an interesting Sawfly because the second larval instar (stage in the larval development between molts) is covered in a white waxy covering and the last larval instar is yellow and black. The female Sawfly inserts her eggs into the leaf in rows along the leaf veins. The eggs hatch into the caterpillar-like larvae that feed on the leaves.
