Hello, this little guy looked very tough, brilliant green, and really loud when airborne. Thanks

Dear Louis,
Unfortunately, the most specific we can get with your identification is to inform you that this is a Sweat Bee in the family Halictidae.  Though your species is most likely different from North American species, you can still see BugGuide for information on the family.  We suspect your individual is a Metallic Green Sweat Bee in the genus
Agapostemon based on its resemblance to North American species pictured on BugGuide.

    With the green almost fly-like abdomen and darker eyes, I’d say this is more specifically a female Agapostemon texanus.
