Chimney Bee Sip & Go - Diadasia - male

Chimney Bee Sip & Go - Diadasia - Male
Tonopah Desert, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA
April 4, 2015
Size: 11mm
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. This bee appears to have a few tiny particles of waxy flakes, pressed onto some of his abdominal hairs, near the center of the last tergite.
Please confirm, move or frass these images. Thanks for your help!
