I found this nice bee, I think it's Dasypoda specie, the best fit that I found is Dasypoda altercator, but I'm not a Hymenoptera expert, so I need your help!
16.08.2013 - Northeast Italy (650 mos)
In Italy we have:
Dasypoda altercator (Harris, 1780) (N, S, Si, Sa)Dasypoda argentata (Panzer, 1809) (N, S)Dasypoda cingulata (Erichson, 1835) (N)Dasypoda pyriformis (Radoszkowski, 1887) (N)Dasypoda suripes (Christ, 1791) (Si)Dasypoda visnaga (Rossi, 1790) (N, S, Si)
Where N = North, S = South, Si = Sicily
Thanks for the help.
Excluding the other species that don't look like the subject, it seem to be Dasypoda altercator syn. Dasypoda hirtipes.
