A small black sawfly, probably a Tenthredinid Hymenoptera: Tenthredinidae).  It looks similar to some species of Dolerus but I don't feel confident in picking out which species.  [Note added 2010-11-08: The head looks too shiny for Dolerus, which are quite furry about the head.  It is most likely some other genus.]
