Not 100% if this is the correct species so I am hoping someone can confirm/suggest otherwise. Many thanks.

Nomada flava group

I think there's a high probability of this being flava. The siblings panzeri and ruficornis tend to be less strongly yellow-marked (i.e. the abdomen is a lot more red overall). Ruficornis can be distinguished by its mandibles being forked at the tip rather than simply pointed (which you can see in the field if you catch it).
