    The two snails are Banded snails - so called because of their shell markings. How big is the insect as it is difficult to tell the scale from the picture?

    HI there. Just seen this creature on another post and thanks to Sheps it has been identified as an argid sawfly. Sorry but I don't know how to link/refer to a post.

    I think the common name is a Rose Sawfly.
