I am assuming this is some species of bee, but I can’t find any info.

Cropped and moved for expert attention
Moved from ID Request.

Thinking Diprionidae, but I'm not sure I can rule out Argidae. Others should know.

Please click on "edit" and add the sighting date to the Date field. More detailed location information (County, etc.) would also be helpful.

Thanks--and welcome to BugGuide!
