Moved from Nomada, Nomad Bees.

Moved from ID Request.

Bee, I think.
Looks like Nomada. The experts will be able to say for sure.

wow, it
wow, it does look similar to Nomada sp.. gracilis looks similar, but it also looks like a lot of potential candidates in that genus, so I think I better leave it to the experts than try to guess myself. Thanks for the lead!

Yes t does look like a gracilis female
But I'm not sure

Ken is right as usual
