    This bee was similar in size to, or a smidge smaller than, the Hylaeus ruficeps listed earlier. I may have seen them previously on Eucalypt flowers, but had thought they were Crabronids. This time I have slightly better shots and think I can see some bee-identifying features. I might be pushing to see the detail I think is in there for this ID ... as always, feedback or comments would be welcomed!
