Nomada ruficornis ID

You may well be right. It's certainly not N flava, the commonest member of this closely allied group with red lines down the thorax. A member of the group with as little yellow as this on the abdomen is probably going to be either panzeri, ruficornis or striata. You can determine ruficornis by the unique feature of the mandibles which are divided into two points at the tip.
