Bee - Andrena - female

Bee - Andrena - Female
Norco, St. Charles Parish, Louisiana, USA

I believe this is Anthophora (oops)...

Found this bee being attacked by ants. It flew away with the ants still attached shortly after I started taking pictures...

Andrena female
note femoral scopa (lacking in Anthophora), long marginal cell, broad head, etc.

Thanks for helping.

Have a great day!
