Small Bee from Palau

A sample of small bees from Palau were submitted for identification.  The specimens were in poor shape.  They arrived glued to clear sticky tape.  Bees have a body length of 3.8 mm.  They emerged from nest attached to a door jam.  The nest was a funnel shaped cone made out of a paper-like substance.

This bee has been tentatively identified as Trigona atomella Cockerell (Hymenoptera: Apidae).
