Another Melissodes

Melissodes is one of the most prominent genera of late summer bees in Kansas, especially on composites. I do not know why Kansas selected the honeybee as its state insect when we have so many wonderful and important native bees. I do have a nominee for a replacement...But you need to wait until the Helianthus are in bloom and I have some good pictures of my nominee.
