I can't give a species (genus is right) but the size estimate is far too large for any of our Nomada. Even 15mm would be unusually large. Size is very difficult to estimate, and overestimates are normal.

Sorry!

I have clearly pressed the incorrect button with regards to the size! It was about 10mm in length.

I suspect this is a female N. marshamella. The widely broken yellow band on T2 and the red tegulae suggest this. However, without a better look, this is just a possibility
