small bee - Coelioxys

small bee - Coelioxys
Opposite Fred Meyer, Meridian Bridge, Puyallup River, Puyallup, Pierce County, Washington, USA
July 15, 2016
Possibly a long horned bee? On Common Tansy or Tanacetum vulgare. The disc of which is listed at 5-10mm which is quite a large range. Should make the bee < 10 mm though. Poor photography due to my infirm hands so as always, keep or frass at your discretion.

Thanks
As always very quick.

looks like a male Coelioxys
based on the middle photo

I'd wait for an expert to confirm/correct that ID

 
Will wait, but there
Will wait but there are some definite similarities. The small triangular appendages on the rear of the abdomen and thorax for instance. Great pictures. And right you were. Thanks.

 
you're welcome
those triangular structures show it's a male. females has a long pointy end to their abdomens
