Ammophila male? - Ammophila

Ammophila male? - Ammophila
Ann Arbor, Washtenaw County, Michigan, USA
September 15, 2019
Size: About 1 inch
I have Ammophila procera in my area, but this one seemed a bit smaller. It lacks the 2 prominent pruinose stripes on the thorax of that species, and maybe the jaws are smaller (or tightly crossed). But I was wondering if it was a male. It was sleeping on goldenrod and about an hour later was sleeping a foot away. Found in County Farm Park.

I'm not sure of the sex. I can't really make out the necessary characteristics, noted on this page. Perhaps someone with better eyes will know. :)
