Halcitid bee - Agapostemon - Female
Sabal Palm Grove, Brownsville, Cameron County, Texas, USA

Would anyone be able to tell me more about this Halcitid bee? Thanks for the help!

Female - Augochlorini
She has shiny green legs, so I'm hoping that Dr. Ascher will take another look at her ID. None of the Agapostemon females have this type of leg integument.
Augochloropsis metallica: ♀ Sorry, but I'm not sure about the propodeum.

Moved from Halictinae.
