Sawfly

[Note added 2010-05-14: I now think this is a woolly alder sawfly, Eriocampa ovata.]

A sawfly, probably of species Eutomostethus ephippium (however, I am not sure if this is the only species of black sawfly with a bright red thorax).

Photo taken in Reading University grounds, Reading, UK, on 2009-05-01.

It looks as if it's got its heart on the outside.
