Is the hairy V on the sterna a diagnostic characteristic of male Panurgiuns ineptus?

Moved from Ants, Bees, Wasps and Sawflies.

I think so

Moved from ID Request.

Please add body size info and maybe the rest of him
It is recommended that you submit full body shots, including a dorsal, lateral and ventral, if you have them. Wing patterns are also important for anything with wings. These views may help the administrators to verify your bugs on the family and genus levels. They also help other people that are searching for info about related taxa. If you have more than one image, then you can select "add image" on the first or any previous image and they will be linked. Also, if you have a body size estimate, you should put that into the size field.
Please let me know if you need more info or check the "Help" section. Thanks!
I suppose that you have already seen this guy, from Colorado. Panurginus cressoniellus or ineptus: ♂ He looks similar to yours, but I'm not very familiar with these Mining Bees. Dr. Ascher will tell you. Good Luck and WELCOME TO BUGGUIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
