Coelioxys male on Rudbeckia sp. - Coelioxys - male

Coelioxys male on Rudbeckia sp. - Coelioxys - Male
North Judson, Starke County, Indiana, USA
June 22, 2017
I believe this is a Coelioxys male; I also photographed a female of what appears to be the same species a bit earlier at the same site - my mostly native sand prairie garden in North Judson, IN. I also photographed a pair of (apparently) this species breeding; all on Rudbeckia flowers (probably R. hirta). They look similar to C. rufitarsis, but I'm not clear on how to make a positive ID. I thought the series might be of some interest.
