Subgenus Scrapteropsis in NB - Andrena

Subgenus Scrapteropsis in NB - Andrena
Riverside-Albert, Albert County, New Brunswick, Canada
May 19, 2020
On Dandelion, but with lots of Willow nearby. ID of Andrena cf imitatrix suggested by John Ascher on iNaturalist:
https://inaturalist.ca/observations/47190928
I see that in the list for AC CDC (Atlantic Canada Conservation Data Ctr), A. alleghaniensis is listed as a "possibility" whereas A. imitatrix is not. On Bug Guide, the info for Subgenus Scrapteropsis mention Canada has 4 species of the possible 19 known for N America. I wonder what the other two species are. I will try applying the filters on Discover Life and see if I can get there myself, but in the meanwhile, if you have any more info, it would be most welcome. Thank you in advance! I will try to collect a few of these now knowing they are not A. wilkella.
