Tiny bee, can’t find a good match - maybe a Pachyprosopis?

Tricky one, Simone!
Face not rounded enough for Pachyprosopis? Maybe Euryglossa, but not an obvious species. Any pictures of the wing venation?
Over to you, Michael.....

He is a male, with small spines beneath the abdomen. The long clypeus helps with separating euryglossines from hylaeines.

I’ve swapped out one of the photos for another that shows more of the wing venation, not a very good view but it may help. I’ve looked over the last couple of days to see if I can see it again but no luck at the moment

Sorry. The previous comments were made in the belief that I had already entered the identification. He could not be confused with anything else.
