MEGACHILIDAE Coelioxys sp. [Portugal]

Is it possible to know this one?
Photographed yesterday, 2017/JUN/30, at home - Maia/Porto, Portugal - I think it it is MEGACHILIDAE Coelioxys sp.; sleeping on the morning of dark day, near with other one of Origanum vulgare subsp. virens where it was feeding.
Thank you for any help.

Definitely a male Coelioxys. There are 15 species in Portugal so hard to say which it is.

Thank you Ian Cross; unfortunely i did'nt even knew that there 15 species in Portugal.
It is just the 3rd time that i see the kind of bees, at home, in 2011, 2014 and now; so ..could be some other specie(s), different from the previous, but ok .., and thanyou agian for checking.
