This sawfly has a mainly black abdomen, but the black legs have a creamy coloured wide band on the tibiae.
Around well vegetated areas, flowers, hedgerows and long grass.
Best in May and June.
The larvae are associated with grasses and sedges.
Seems widespread in England at least but lack of records makes it difficult to determine its exact status in Britain.
Status in Leicestershire and Rutland not known.
