Andrena violae? - Andrena violae - female

Andrena violae? - Andrena violae - Female
Frederick County, Maryland, USA
May 8, 2018
Size: Approx 10 mm
Trying to determine if this is Andrena violae (she was found visiting violets in the shady part of a suburban backyard where violet flowers are abundant), or at minimum definitely an Andrena spp. If you can't provide a confident ID but could suggest a few more species that look very similar to this, that would also be much appreciated; I'm new to bees and Andrena's a pretty overwhelming genus to dig into.
