Cerceris fumipennis? - Cerceris fumipennis

I'm trying to build a list of Hymenoptera that I find in my city garden. I've categorized this as Cerceris fumipennis because it seems to match the description well ("Dark smoky brown wings. One creamy yellow band on the second abdominal segment.") I only count two spots on the face but the angle for that is terrible.
Also, there are similarities between it and other images of this species that have been positively identified. It has a bit of the same whitish-yellow color on the side of the third (?) abdominal segment. Also, the light areas on the legs seem to be the same.
