Thank you, Eric. I left this as "unidentified" because I was unsure if there were any visual characteristics that could distinguish the different species, and I wanted to make sure it showed up as "unknown" to anyone who might be able to provide a more specific identification.

Why is this still "unidentified?" Genus is about the best you are going to do from an image of a live specimen.

Thank you very much, Kya! I've already filled my five-mission per spotting allotment, though! I might have to do some switching around!

You can also upload this to field missions "nature in yellow" and "pollinators of the world".
