Andrenidae? - Nomada
Briones Regional Park, Contra Costa County, California, USA

Size: 8mm-ish
Rather lethargic, probably because it was cool and gray. When disturbed it curled up and played dead rather then flying off.

Moved from ID Request.

I was in Briones today myself (my parents live in Lafayette) but didn't see any Nomada.

Thanks John

There were a number of these along the Briones Crest Trail between Old Briones Road and Sindicich Lagoon. Was one of the few bright spots in a cool breezy morning.
