    Roch Desmier de Chenon says

    Hi Karen Retra, it seems for me an Euryglossina (Euryglossina) definitively, it might be very likely to be : fuscescens Ckl. The facial view of the head is needed for final species identification. Beautiful serie of photos. Great.

    Hello Roch, thanks so much for confirming that and offering even a species suggestion! I think I'd better re-visit the site and hope the flowers and bees might provide opportunities for some more photos. Thanks again!

    These were more small bees seen inside Corymbia flowers. The colour variation between the top and underside of the metasoma caught my eye ... and lead me to Euryglossinae (where I got stuck). Any assistance to add to or correct this ID would be much appreciated!
