Bees in the family Halictidae have a tongue which, although technically short, appears long and jointed (bent). They have a characteristic wing venation (strongly curved M vein).
The genus Lasioglossum has the main pollen-carrying hairs on the hind femur, and also carries lesser amounts on the hind tibia and under the metasoma.
This particular species is often seen feeding on 'daisies'.
