The golden sheen makes me think Leioproctus. Some shots show extended moth parts well.

Lasioglossum asperithorax Bee
Identified as Lasioglossum Chilalictus asperithorax on Bowerbird by Ken Walker: "Notice the very dull mesoscutum (ie. thorax). The dullness is dull to very close and deep punctations. The mesoscutum of L. calophyllae has a shine and smoothness to it. Although we cannot see it in these images, the lateral margins of the propodeum will be laterally flanged as well."

Description

Field Notes - Saw this insect (looks lime a bee but slightly smaller than the common honey bee) on my Jacobaea maritima (Dusty Miller). It looked like it was collecting the fuzz of the plant and keeping it under its belly. Black head, thorax and abdomen with faint white bands. Greyish fur around the face.
