Port crane, Broome County, New York, USA
June 8, 2018
Found at 7:01pm. Seemed lethargic and did not move much after landing on my son's shirt and crawling on to my porch.

Moved from Long-horned Beetles.

I believe it is a late Megacyllene caryae as well, April was rather cool this year in many places which could have delayed emergence.

Image not needed for the guide.

Could be M. caryae or M. robiniae. I don't know how to tell them apart from a dorsal shot, but if this is M. robiniae, then it has emerged a couple months early. M. caryae, which this specimen probably is, typically emerges in the spring.
