Agapostemon

Agapostemon
Portland, Multnomah County, Oregon, USA
September 6, 2008
Agapostemon? or Augochlorini? on sunflower cultivar.

Female?

Tibia seems to be equal or longer than tarsal segments which would suggest this is Agapostemon. (Don't get propodeum/salient rim distinguisher.) And yet,the range of the two that seem to most match it, sericeus and then splendens, don't work so....)

Yes, this is an older photo...trying to get a handle on what I see here...Thanks in advance for pointers.

As always thanks for sharing your expertise! I somehow managed to miss that texanus female could have green abdomen.
