A Sweat bee male foraging for nectar on Giant goldenrod (Solidago gigantea).

Unfortunately the photographs were too bad to determine the species. There are a number of completely black Lasioglossum species that resemble it, a.o.:

  • L. sabulosum
  • L. lucidulum
  • L. minutissimum
  • L. semilucens
