Chimney Bee Slightly Hairy - Diadasia - male

Chimney Bee Slightly Hairy - Diadasia - Male
Tonopah Desert, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA
April 4, 2015
Size: 10mm
This bee is in a Prickly Pear Cactus, Opuntia Engelmannii. I think that this is a male Chimney Bee in the Diadasia australis species group. These males do not appear to have as much hair as other males that I have seen on the BugGuide. I tried to find the best shots of him from all angles.
Please confirm, move or frass these images. Thanks for your help!
