Don't know if this is showing all that would be needed for an ID. From two years ago so I am not sure of the size. Gathering on Boneset although I imagine that to be incidental.

Our own Boneset (Eupatorium cannabinum)is an appreciated nectar and pollen source here in Western Europe too.

Thank you, Richard.
Yes, I find many different subjects on our boneset, which I cultivate just for the insects.
