The hair bands on Lipotriches phanerura are yellow and even if faded are unlikely to be as white as in the photos. In addition, the cuticle is metallic green not black. Assuming that the colours in the pictures are reasonably accurate, the important question is whether the hair bands are at the front or rear of each abdominal segment. Front for Lasioglossum, rear for Lipotriches. I can't see which it is.

I'll see what I can do, colours are good but naturemap is not great at rendering, relative, say to Flickr

replacement image added, bit closer. Hair bands look like they are at the rear.

I agree and if I lighten the image a bit I can see green on the thorax and, perhaps, red on the end of the abdomen. The tegulae at the base of the wings are usually quite orange, so either this is an somewhat unusual colour form or the strong colour of the flower may be having an effect on other areas of the image.
