Shiny green bee--Augochlorini? - Agapostemon - female

Shiny green bee--Augochlorini? - Agapostemon - Female
Española, Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, USA
April 30, 2011
Size: 6 mm body length?
Rescued from a bucket with water in it, as you can see in other pictures.

One shot has the hind legs. I thought the tibia was shorter than the tarsus, but we'll see whether my guess of Augochlorini was right.

That was fast! I think I'll put in the question mark I meant to put in after "Augochlorini", so people don't get confused.
