Mining bee

Just out of curiosity, how would you distinguish this hole from those made by other similar sized Andrena species (there are quite a few)?

bee hole

well i have them in my garden and i have seen them doing the same, and it did look the right size when greame took the piture.
oh and im not an expert on taxonomy of bees, it was just the latin name that came up when i searched for tawny minor bee.
i may have been being a bit over confident when i said 'definately', i didn't realise there was so many minors.

Not to worry!

I was wondering if you might have seen other pics that were not posted. Still, worth looking nonetheless
