Bee - Anthidium oblongatum

Bee - Anthidium oblongatum
Adams County, Pennsylvania, USA

Size: 1/2 inch
Which bee, please? Megachilidae? Found with Anthidium oblongatum but don't think it is the same species.

Anthidium oblongatum

Thanks, John. Looked different than the others. Maybe it is a male? I read on one of the other photos, you noted the amber legs as a characteristic of Anthidium oblongatum, that was one reason I didn't think this was one.

As always, I really appreciate your help.
