I think. The fine mesopleural hairs may be visible in the fourth picture. Otherwise, DiscoverLife narrowed me to this and cressonii, and the latter does not appear to have records in upstate NY.

Interesting behavior: appears to be attempted theft of pollen from the bumblebee worker by the honeybee. The honeybee was repeatedly landing on the bumblebee for at least a minute, and actually followed the bumblebee to a second flower on the bull thistle plant. On looking at the photos, it appears the honeybee worker was targeting the pollen clumps on the corbicula. She was not successful in removing an entire clump but did seem to be getting some of it off.

After looking through Triepeolus species on BugGuide, I'm wondering if this might be Triepeolus eliseae. I have additional photos if they'd be helpful, but unfortunately only the one (included here in this entry) that shows the bee from the rear - and it's somewhat blurry as the bee was spinning on the flower when I snapped that picture, and it flew away a few seconds later. Bee found on rudbeckia, back yard.

So, this is a polyergus bilateral gynandromorph! ½ worker caste (red), ½ alate (black). The mandibles, eyes, single wing, and antennae are the more obvious caste traits reflected in each half of this individual. Found them shortly after leaving the colony possibly (I found one a few feet away).

@beeboy One of the Nomada males associated with Andrena geranii. Wish I'd spent a little more time on these guys, there were quite a few of them. About average size for a Nomada. From what I can see in my photos only T2-3 have yellow markings, the face is extensively black with perhaps some yellow in the paraocular area and a lot of silver pile (posted bad photo of face), pygidium notched. I have also posted another individual.

@beeboy The other Nomada individual associated with A. geranii. Can't say for certain if this is the same species, as extent of black on the face seems to be much less, colors bolder overall, but then again one can't often trust mere color patterns in this genus.

found on elderberry in mixed forest—based on Coccinellidae of N. America (Gordon), it seems more likely that it is this species than H. pratensis due to range (H. deludens range listed as New England to midwest, H. pratensis described as ‘known only to missouri and new jersey,’ but one record (https://eol.org/pages/1174576/media) did show this species in Maine) and body description: H. pratensis was noted to be elongate more like many Brachiacantha, while H. deludens described as ‘extremely convex, rounded’

No kidding.

@joegiulian and @samwilhelm first observed and collected small Colletes males hovering around a patch of Kalmia angustifolia at this open, sandy site in the Pinelands during the last week of May. C. bradleyi had been on our radar, but this was somewhat earlier than we expected since previous records are from mid-late June. The male of C. bradleyi was formerly unknown, but it seemed to us that multiple features of these male specimens (fine, well-spaced punctures on scutum, carinate metapleural projection with testaceous rim) were reminiscent of descriptions of the female of C. bradleyi by Mitchell (1951) and Stephen (1954). The following day, @andrew_aldercotte and I visited the same site and observed multiple male Colletes, as well as females that appeared to be collecting pollen from Kalmia angustifolia (see photo). Male specimens collected on this day matched those collected previously at the site by Joe and Sam and females we collected keyed exactly to C. bradleyi following Mitchell (1951) and Stephen (1954). Highly distinctive in the field - overall impression much like other americanus-group Colletes, but somewhat duller and lacking basal hair bands on tergites; quite unique among the Colletes and general bee fauna active in our area at this time of year. Subsequent visits to other sites in the Pinelands have turned up several more female and male specimens, all collected in association with Kalmia angustifolia (alongside Andrena kalmiae and occasionally Colletes consors!). Full natural history writeup in the works...

A specimen recently discovered by Joe that was taken in Washington County, Maine, provides the first evidence that this species may occur more widely than previously thought. Moral of the story for beewatchers in the northeast US: scrutinize flowering Sheep Laurel, especially in sandy barrens habitats!

Perhaps even more interestingly, Joe and Sam also managed to collect several male specimens of an as-of-yet unidentified Epeolus visiting Kalmia alongside Colletes bradleyi at our "original" site on the date that they first observed C. bradleyi males; we have yet to find additional individuals of this Epeolus despite effort.

See observation of male here: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/122250341
See observations of Epeolus here:
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/122250342
and here:
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/122250345

UPDATE: Thomas Onuferko identifies the Epeolus as E. inornatus; considering previous host records for this species, it's likely associated with Colletes banksi, which almost certainly occurs at this site

On Kalmia angustifolia, their apparent host. DSLR photos of specimens to be added, though sub-par phone photos do show relevant features (punctures on scutum, metapleural protuberance, etc).

Shiny protuberant clypeus with sparse medial pitting, tessellated scutum, weak tergal fasciae, depressed area of tergites taking up almost the entire length, no pollen being carried on propodeum. The only Andrena species, and one of the only bees, observed visiting these flowers.

I know there are few records of this species, but the specimen keys out to smilacinae on DiscoverLife (even when ignoring the abdomen color) and seems to match the description in Mitchell (1962) as far as I can tell. I know Sphecodes ID is very difficult, so feedback is welcome.

All-black abdomen, most pits on scutum not touching each other, strong pronotal angle, propodeum triangle filled with reticulation, rear face of propodeum with smooth triangular area, sparse pits in center of T2, bidentate mandibles
