I saw what I thought to be an unusual bumblebee on the Japonica in my mixed hedge. The 'bee' is approximately 2cm long,its thorax is shiny and beetle-like but its abdomen is hairy and striped like a bumblebee. The head and eyes are ginger brown. The colouring in the photo taken on my mobile is accurate, as I remember it. Any help in identification would be much appreciated, thank you.
