''Euglossa dilemma'', the green orchid bee or dilemma orchid bee, is a species of solitary euglossine bee native to a broad area of Central America, and recently introduced to Florida in the United States. It was first detected in Broward County, Florida in 2003, and initially identified as ''Euglossa viridissima'', but further study revealed that ''E. viridissima'' as previously defined consisted of two cryptic species, and the one present in Florida was new to science.
