Pacific Digger Bees

I'm the first to admit Identifying Honeybees is difficult for me because of the diversity in outward appearance. Bumblebees are worse still and the publicly available documents are not very helpful.

Solitary bees seem to be as different in appearance as people. It is making me nuts.

Search iNaturalist for any of the solitary bees lets say Pacific Digger Bee Anthophora pacifica and you get so many different looking bees I want to pull my hair out and I don't have that much left. Ok so Anthophora pacifica is in the tribe Anthophorini. Maybe I have the male and female matched maybe I don't. Maybe the boy bees are as confused as I am.

This is the bee most often attacked by the Pacific Digger Bee that I think is a male.
