Strange-looking bee with a weird looking thorax. Help please? Thanks.

Moved from Mason Bees.

Moved from ID Request.

Please note the instructions on the image submission form "For consistency, please do not include any borders or other decorations around your image."

Looks like an Osmia sp. with mites on its back.
