Bee or Wasp - Hylaeus - male

Bee or Wasp - Hylaeus - Male
Elkton, Douglas County, Oregon, USA
June 21, 2009
Size: approx 9mm
On Saint Johnswort. With some of these, I'm never sure if it's a bee or a wasp. I'm leaning toward wasp because of the yellow on the legs and face, and hoping those markings will generate an ID.
