Coelioxys modestus? - Coelioxys - female

Coelioxys modestus? - Coelioxys - Female
Frederick County, Maryland, USA
June 21, 2018
I believe this is the same individual that I photographed yesterday, given that I found her on the same Asclepias tuberosa plant at the same time of day and this is the first time I've seen Coelioxys here.

If I'm using Discover Life's guide for Coelioxys spp correctly, I think this is either C. modestus or alternatus based on the leg color and the shape of the abdomen tip, and I took some pictures that seem like they might show the knob at the tip of T6 present in modestus (the background is admittedly mottled, but I have several photos from this angle that show the shape moving as she moves).
