From back in the middle of the summer, an orange and black sawfly.  At first I thought this was Arge sp. but I have just noticed that it has too many segments in its antennae (about 8, as opposed to the 3 that Arge have), so I now think it is Athalia sp. (Hymenoptera: Tenthredinidae).  The black coloration on the thorax does seem to be quite variable in these orange and black sawfly species.
