Western Leaf Cutting Bee ?? - Apis mellifera

Western Leaf Cutting Bee ?? - Apis mellifera
Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
September 9, 2010
Size: Approx. 1/2"
Caught this bee nectaring on tiny sedum blossoms and I think it's a Western Leaf Cutting Bee. However, my insect guide says that Western Leaf Cutting Bees have clear wings with black veins, but this one has brown veins. Will appreciate a qualified opinion.

oops
Is Apis. I should have looked harder at it.
