Quite distinctive, with striking black & yellow markings combined with orange legs & lower face. Late to appear - most of my other Nomada are spring fliers - to time with the nesting of the hosts, Melitta, or Blunthorn bees, which specialise in clovers or Red Bartsia. I have seen this Nomad for the past three years, but never its Melitta host.
