ABSTRACT
Sawfly, any of a group of four-winged insects. The name sawfly comes from the shape of the ovipositor (the egg-laying organ of the female). The ovipositor usually has rows of toothlike ridges and somewhat resembles a saw. The female uses the ovipositor to make slits in various plant parts where she lays her eggs.
