Moved from Halictus poeyi.

Halictus males, likely H. parallelus
not poeyi as I had thought

 
Thanks
OK, I will correct it. How can one tell them apart?

 
Easy with specimens as parallels is much larger
Harder from images as some poeyi have quite dark wings. I now think these are poeyi based on locality, amount of pair hairs on scutum, head shape, and leg color.
