Author's notes

These bees were present in good numbers. About the same length but slighter build than the European bees. (also there) Both species were favouring the Cakile maritima (sea rocket) flowers.

Fantastic shots Max! Family Halictidae based on strongly curved basal wing vein, and probably Lassioglossum, based on primary scopae (pollen-carrying hairs) - appears to be on femur (rather than tibia).

Hi Kerry - It certainly looks like a Lasioglossum sp; I thought the yellow face mask (see my image three) might give us the species so I searched google images and found Lasioglossum (Parasphecodes) altichum on the "Insects of Tasmania " site. It has the mask and is generally very similar, but has a dark red abdomen which none of my photos show.

Let's confirm as Lassioglossum sp. I note that there are several species with yellow clypeus, including Lasioglossum (Parasphecodes) forresti , which actually has a dark abdomen. It might be a QLD species, though, so I reckon we stop at genus. In my experience, bees can be very tricky.
