Unknown Bee - Protoxaea gloriosa

Unknown Bee - Protoxaea gloriosa
Bitter Lake NWR, Chaves County, New Mexico, USA

There were a number of these in flight, as is this one, with each one seeming to guard their own area. If one bee came into another bee's area that would result in a confrontation of some sort.

Would appreciate an ID.
