Sawfly larva - unidentified sp.

By Mendipman  
I've seen plenty of sawfly larvae over the years and this time of the year is particularly good for seeing lots of different varieties, most of which I am hopeless at trying to identify, but this is the first time I've found one that has just moulted. This is not a particularly large one at around 15mm in length.

Any help with an id would be greatly appreciated.

Best viewed large.

Many thanks for the votes and comments on the previous upload of the Small Copper and especially to Pete (civitas), Ade (ade123), Paul (livinglevels) and Carol (CarolG) for their UA's, so very much appreciated. GrinGrinGrinGrin
