Bad picture quality I know... but the plant has a leaf on opposite ends as it grows.

Like a epipactis hellborrine orchid

Is it possible to get clearer pictures? I can't see the caterpillar.

The plant was ID'd as false solomon's seal, not solomon's seal. Where was the critter ID'd as a sawfly?

I meant on what Forum was it ID'd as a sawfly (a sawfly larva is not a caterpillar). Sorry, that was an ambiguous question, I knew what I meant Hilarious! I ask because the critter in your picture looks more like a caterpillar than a sawfly to me and the characteristics that distinguish between the two are not visible in the picture. So presumably someone recognized it, or you were able to ID it?

It would not be Solomon's seal sawfly, but presumably is false Solomon's seal sawfly, this one:
