Nomada panzeri (Roman road)

There is a group of Nomada bees that cant be separated by the eye or macro photo, it is the flava  group , these are all the same size , colouring so they can only be separated by hair colour on certain parts , body markings (not the stripes as these are variable)

N. panzeri is recorded over much of Britain but is rarely as common as N. flava in the south and more strongly associated with woodland. It has a number of hosts: A. varians, synadelpha, helvola, fucata, lapponica and fulva, and a number of host races seem to be present (the taxonomic status of these needs investigation). Females associated with A. lapponica are usually very dark, whilst those associated with A. fulva tend to be as large as N. flava.
