John, this wasp's sub-tribe does not seem to have as many images, here on the BugGuide, as the one that I was lost in yesterday. Yes, I would still be stuck in that whole sub-family, without your help. Thank You!
I have updated the text and I now think that this Sand Wasp is a close match to this image:

The females seem to have more black on them, just like the Beewolves. Since there are not very many images of the genus here, I will try to get better footage of both sexes.
