I need some help identifying this bee. I think it’s some kind of sweat bee but I can’t identify it in my field guide. It has the size of a Halictus rubicundus, the Orange-legged Furrow Bee but not the pileation or leg color. Thanks for your help!

I'm leaning toward Lasioglossum here.

Thanks! :hi:

I wanted to have an ID before posting it on the bee photography thread.

Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. -Proverbs 6: 6-8
