Scolia nobilita?

Scolia nobilita?
Arcadia, Desoto County, Florida, USA

I believe this may be Scolia nobilita but would appreciate confirmation or correction

Moved
Moved from Scolia.

S. nobilitata has red legs.
Pygodasis quadrimaculata is similar, but I'm not seeing any with yellow on the scutellum. To me, this looks most like Dielis trifasciata:



I'm wondering if there's a third yellow band hiding under those dark wing tips.
