Another unidentified bee.
Southeastern PA
Hymenoptera Anthophila Halictidae Halictus ligatus representative

Halictus ligatus
sorry, Adalbert. The hair bands are apical, not basal, so it's an Halictus , and the broad head makes it ligatus.

Thanks again, and the descriptive details are very helpful, too.

Halictid bee
This is a bee in the family Halictidae, probably Halictus sp.

Lasioglossum coriaceum
Looks like Lasioglossum coriaceum, a close relative of Halictus.
