Moved from Nomada.

Nomada utahensis Moalif

Moved from ID Request.

The red antennae suggest maybe the N. ruficornis group (ruficornis is Latin or Greek for red horn, presumably after the red antennae of the species).

No, it's the vincta group [=Pachynomada]

A cuckoo bee in the genus Nomada. Outstanding images.
