thanks for reply which gives me more ammunition. Will let you know if I or anyone else can narrow it down.Apoidea is the superfamily that contains all of the bees. The species you listed is in the family Halictidae, but I don't believe the specimen in the picture is a Halictid. Rather, I would venture to guess it is in the family Apidae (huge family) in the tribe Epeolini which is a tribe within the cuckoo bees. To make a big stretch I would put it in the genus Epeolus.
