Lasioglossum bees roosting in ranunculus photos by I and M Margitta
Identified as Lasioglossum on Bowerbird by Russell Best: "I know you were after the bees! :) It will probably be R. lappaceus or R. scapigera/plebius. Flora of Vic has the former flowering Aug-Nov and the latter pair in Dec. Possibly able to thoroughly discount lappaceus with sepals but scapigera/plebius can only be differentiated by the beak of the achene!"

Tiny bee looks like Megachilid on Rostellularia adscendens
Identified as Megachile callura on Bowerbird by Ken Walker: "Hi Linda - This is a bit of an educated guess based on your top right corner picture which shows the specimen has extremely elongate antennae. Only M. callura has such a character from bees records near the area where you photographed this bee. Ken"

Two bees in Diuris at Dowling Forest Cemetery by Mike Wicks
Identified as Lasioglossum lanarium on Bowerbird by Mitch Smith: "Bit hard to tell the sp. of diuris with those pesky bees in the way, but with the location and the yellow pollinia(other Golden Moths have white pollen) it has to be D.behrii.
Dont forget to post any possible Orchid pollinators sightings in the 'Orchid Pollinators' project.

There are few flower visitation records for this species, so it is interesting to see male territorial activity at Wahlenbergia. Great photos, Linda.
