Moved from Nomada.
It is always a good idea to add the sex info once it is given to you. I did it for you this time. I also moved it to species group.

Nomada female
A member of subgenus Heminomada sensu Mitchell, in the ruficornis species group

Most likely N. imbricata. If not a related species.

Probable hosts are Andrena (Melandrena)

Thank you
