I'm not sure where to start with identifying this

  • An ant?
    Confidence: It might be this.
    Likely ID
    Lassioglossum bee?
    Confidence: It might be this.

I think you're right with suggesting a bee in genus Lasioglossum. Really need them under a microscope to identify to species.

That's close enough

Thanks Martin, that's probably close enough, I am not obsessive enough to get a microscope (yet)
