luteola subgroup?

Any other bees?
If this is a Nomada, these lay eggs in other bees' burrows. Did you see any other bees (e.g. Andrena) around?

other bees:
My first foray into the field this spring, I was interested in what might be out after our drought that destroyed most of our broad-leafed plants last summer. Very, very few grasshoppers, and one metalic sweat bee. Of course, it was a very large field and I took in only a portion of it. (And it's very possible that I disregarded small, drab bees because they are so difficult for my camera to capture.)

Guessing Nomada

Dr. Ascher will be able to say for sure.

That one looks like a good fit--I'll wait for confirmation.
