Introduction

The superfamilies Cephoidea, Orussoidea, Pamphilioidea, Siricoidea, Tenthredinoidea, Xiphydrioidea and Xyeloidea are combined as one checklist section, as the sawflies represent a distinctive assemblage of phytophagous (except Orussidae) Hymenoptera. More than fifty years have passed since the publication of the final part of Robert B. Benson’s three part identification key to the “Symphyta” of the British Isles (Benson 1935, Benson 1952, Benson 1958). Whilst the first two parts were based substantially on the acute monography by Eduard Enslin (Enslin 1912Enslin 1913Enslin 1914Enslin 1915Enslin 1916Enslin 1917 and Enslin 1918), Benson’s treatment of the Nematinae represented an original and significant step forward in our knowledge of this subfamily. The results of subsequent research on the British and Irish sawfly fauna were collated by Quinlan (1978). Since then, renewed investigation of the taxonomy of West Palaearctic sawflies has led to a great number of taxonomic and nomenclatural changes, affecting many taxa occurring in the British Isles.

Of particular value in accessing the extensive but widely scattered literature on sawflies, is the online database “Electronic World Catalog of Symphyta (ECatSym)” (Blank et al. 2012). Unfortunately, the only identification guide to the European “Symphyta” published since 1958 with a more than local geographical scope, by Zhelochovtsev (1988), suffers from weaknesses, such as the reliance placed on the opinions and illustrations of E. Lindqvist in its treatment of the Nematinae. Mistakes in translation from Russian make the later English language edition of this work even more difficult to use.

Special problems are attached to the interpretation of records for some species not found in the British Isles since their inclusion in the works of Leach (1817) and Stephens (1835). Some of these are probably extinct, but their presence in the British Isles has in many cases never been unequivocally proved: see for example Benson (1943). We therefore maintain the practice, as in Fitton et al. (1978), of marking names of such taxa with a preceding “?”. Further, the taxonomic status of some of the nominal taxa described from the British Isles by Hill, Stephens, Newman and Cameron is still unclear, particularly where no type material has been located. The number of confirmed British sawfly species now stands at 537, compared to 471 in the 1978 checklist (Quinlan 1978Broad 2014). Note that, since the publication of the introduction section (Broad 2014) a further family, Heptamelidae, has been recognised (Malm and Nyman 2014), including two British species previously included in Tenthredinidae.

Authorship and date of publication of original descriptions by various authors follow mainly the bibliographic research of Taeger and Blank (1996), Taeger and Blank (2006), Blank and Taeger (1998), Blank et al. (2009) and Taeger et al. (2010).

The classification of genera used here is largely based on the system of Benson (1951-1958). This has the advantages of being relatively simple and widely known. Detailed phylogenetic studies on several major lineages of Tenthredinidae are still lacking. However, some definite conclusions on generic groupings were reached by Nyman et al. (2006) on the Nematinae and Leppänen et al. (2012) on the Fenusini of the Blennocampinae. For the higher Nematinae, the full taxonomic and nomenclatural consequences of the recently proposed phylogeny have not yet been drawn. Far fewer genera will in future be recognised. For the present, we revert here to a generic classification that is similar to that used by Benson (1958), even though we are aware that Pachynematus, for example, is not monophyletic.

Genus and species group names are included selectively in the synonymy. For a complete current synonymy of all these, including important misidentifications, see ECatSym (Blank et al. 2012). A name is only included as a synonym when it fulfils one or both of the following criteria:

  • has at some time been used for a taxon occurring in the British Isles;
  • is used in widely consulted works on taxonomy or distribution, or in original accounts of biological characters / descriptions of immature stages.

The general scope and rationale for the checklist are covered by Broad (2014). As for the rest of the checklist, the Channel Islands fauna is excluded: see Sheppard (1990) on the sawfly fauna of the Channel Islands. There is a lack of data on the sawflies of the Isle of Man. It should be noted that several species were mistakenly listed as occurring in Scotland by Liston (1995).

Some of the diversity of British sawflies is illustrated in Figs 1, 2, 3, 4.

Distribution:

Notes: 

Established in Ireland. Urocerus augur, U. fantoma and U. tardigradus have at times been recorded as introductions to the British Isles, but only U. augur is regarded as established (O'Connor et al. 1997). All were treated as valid species by Smith (1978), although U. tardigradus had for a long time been placed as a synonym of U. fantoma. Benson 1958 (ii, supplement to section a) added U. tardigradus to the British list with “fantoma Fabricius auctt. nec Fabricius” as its synonym and separated this in a key from “U. fantoma fantoma (= augur augur Klug)”. The reasons for this treatment are not clear. No type specimens are known to exist for either U. fantoma or U. tardigradus, but Fabricius (1781) in his short original description of Sirex fantoma describes the legs as yellow, whereas U. augur has extensively black tibiae. European specimens previously identified as U. tardigradus have so far all proved to belong to U. fantoma (A. Taeger, pers. comm.). We revert here to treating U. tardigradus as a synonym of U. fantoma.

Notes: 

Arge stephensii differs very markedly, in the extreme development of pale body markings, from all known W. Palaearctic populations of A. pagana. Traditionally, A. stephensii has been regarded as an endemic British subspecies of A. pagana. Further studies [here a DNA analysis might offer good clues] are definitely required. The possibility cannot be excluded that A. stephensii is a separate species originally introduced from the E. Palaearctic or Oriental Regions, where Arge is both extremely species-rich and poorly investigated.

healyi Altenhofer & Zombori, 1987

Distribution:

Notes: 

Added by Altenhofer and Zombori (1987).

Phyllotoma aceris was described on the basis of specimens "bred by Mr Healy from larvae which make great blotches in the leaves of Acer campestre, and occasionally in Acer pseudo-platanus" McLachlan (1867). According to present knowledge on distribution and hostplants, the syntype series probably consisted of more than one species. The description is not sufficiently detailed to determine the identity of the specimens which McLachlan examined. No type material has been located, as already stated by Altenhofer and Zombori (1987). Nevertheless, Altenhofer and Zombori (1987) chose to regard P. aceris McLachlan as being conspecific with a species which was reared from A. campestre and proposed for it the new name Heterarthrus healyi. H. healyi was subsequently found to be synonymous with H. wuestneii (Konow, 1905) (Blank et al. 2001).

Notes: 

Regarded as a group of sibling (biological) species by Kopelke (1996), Kopelke (2000). These are very difficult, perhaps impossible, to distinguish using adult morphological characters. According to records of galls on various identified Salix species, at least the following three species belonging to the group occur in the British Isles: E. auritae, E. purpureae and E. weiffenbachii.

Distribution:

Notes: 

Taeger and Blank (1998) regard P. clitellatus and P. fallax as morphologically highly variable species, which together include most of the previously described W. Palaearctic taxa. Their arguments for this are well reasoned, but at present it seems prudent to continue to regard several of the more distinctive morphological segregates, treated as species by Benson (1958), as separate taxa, because morphologically intermediate specimens are rare (at least in the male sex). The taxonomy of the whole group requires further intensive work, including genetic analysis. According to Taeger and Blank (1998) P. kirbyi, treated here as valid, is a synonym of P. clitellatus.

Notes: 

Three morphologically well distinguished Phyllocolpa species feed on Salix viminalis in Europe (Vikberg 2010a). Benson (1958) had already distinguished these under the names P. piliserra, P. scotaspis and P. anglica. Kopelke (2007b) stated that only two European species occur on this host, and synonymised Nematus anglicus and N. nigrolineatus with P. scotaspis, thus leaving the taxon formerly referred to as P. anglica without a valid name. The opinions of Benson and Vikberg are followed here.

According to Kopelke (2007a), P. erythropyga (Förster, 1854) has previously been confused with P. leucosticta. Whilst P. erythropyga was recorded in the British Isles by Liston et al. (2012), records of P. leucosticta require validation.

Lygaeophora variipes Lindqvist, 1952 is preoccupied in Pristiphora by P. varipes Serville, 1823. The names varipes and variipes are to be regarded as identical spellings: Article 58.14. (ICZN 1999). Pristiphora varipes Serville, 1823 is a species inquirenda, not a synonym of Cladius (Priophorus) pallipes Serville, 1823 or C. brullei (Dahlbom, 1835) (see Lacourt 2000). The conditions of Article 23.9., permitting continued use of the junior homonym as valid, are not fulfilled for variipes (Lindqvist) because this has only been used as a valid name on twenty occasions in works published within the last 50 years (23.9.1.2.).

Notes: 

Possibly two British species occur under this name: one mainly in the lowlands with hostplant Betula, the other montane with host Vaccinium. Whilst P. cincta seems to be the correct name for the more brightly coloured lowland taxon, until a revision is made of the numerous supposed synonyms of P. cincta, the name for the species on Vaccinium is unclear.

Pristiphora (Pristiphora) denudata Konow, 1902

Nomenclature: 

atlantica Lacourt, 1987: misident.

Distribution: 
England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland
Notes: 

Contrary to the opinion of Lacourt (1987), we do not consider this taxon to be synonymous with P. pallidiventris (Fallén, 1808) (P. pallidiventris pallidiventris sensu Lacourt), nor with P. atlantica Malaise, 1939 (= P. atlantica Lacourt, 1987) as previously treated by Liston (1995), who replaced the name denudata with atlantica Lacourt on the grounds that the name denudata is preoccupied in Pristiphora by Nematus denudatus Hartig, 1840. Nematus denudatus was at that time considered to be a synonym of Pristiphora carinata (Hartig, 1837). According to Schmidt (in Lacourt 1999), N. denudatus Hartig actually belongs to Amauronematus (Brachycoluma), thus removing the homonymy. P. denudata differs from P. pallidiventris not only in the more extensively pale abdomen (without intermediate specimens), but also in details of the structure of the saw, and is probably attached only to Rubus species, whereas P. pallidiventris is polyphagous on various Rosaceae.

Therefore this record is considered to be based on a misidentification. However, J. Grearson has recently taken females in England, identity confirmed by V. Vikberg after comparison with the holotype (Grearson, in preparation).

Distribution: 
England, Scotland, Wales
Notes: 

Haris (2000) regards D. scoticus as a species distinct from D. yukonensis (= arcticola Kiaer). Benson (1935) had already drawn essentially the same conclusions. D. scoticus was subsequently (Benson 1952) regarded as a synonym of Dolerus saxatilis and latterly (Benson 1958: corrigenda) as a synonym of D. yukonensis. Goulet (1986) concurred with the synonymy of D. scoticus and D. yukonensis.

oblongus Cameron, 1882

planatus Hartig, 1837: misident.

Distribution: 
England, Scotland
Notes: 

Previous records of D. asper from Wales and Ireland require checking, because they may refer to D. brevicornis (below), recently distinguished by Heidemaa et al. (2004). English specimens of D. asper, leg. K. J. Grearson, have been determined by M. Heidemaa. The only evidence for the presence of D. asper in Scotland is the determination of a syntype specimen of Dolerus oblongus in NHM, examined by Heidemaa et al. (2004) and identified as D. asper. Cameron (1882) described D. oblongus from “Braemar, Rannoch, Clydesdale”.
