Hylaeus sp. ( poss. H. annulatus )

This mating pair was found on the same plant as the robber fly/bee post (Here) I made the other day, where mention was made of how tiny the bee was.  These two measure just over 5mm.  Unlike many bees, they are quite hairless and don’t have external pollen baskets, so they must ingest the pollen they collect.
