Green Metallic Sweat Bee - Augochloropsis metallica - Male
Pleasantville, Westchester County, New York, USA

Size: est 3/8"
This is a bright green metallic sweat bee with metallic green upper legs and pale lower legs. The bee's tegulae are partly metallic green. The bee's face (cheeks) are covered with longish pale hair. On mountain mint.

Is this Augochloropsis metallica? It resembles the A. metallica shown in the Packer Bees of Canada database. (http://www.yorku.ca/bugsrus/resources/galleries/boc#Augochloropsis) . Thanks so much for any help you can give.
