unknown bee - Megachile centuncularis - Female
Aromas, San Benito County, California, USA

Size: ~8mm.
Got only one shot of this guy, anybody know what it might be?


appears to be M. centuncularis

Seeing how it's carrying the pollen under the abdomen rather than on the legs, I'd say this is a Leaf-Cutter Bee in the family Megachilidae. John or someone else will be able to give you a better ID.

Megachile sp.
No arolia between claws.

a Megachile female

Thank you
I've moved it to the Megachile page.
