Male. I have a hard time telling whether the bands on the abdomen are at the top or bottom of the segments. However, the long antennae andd the yellow markings on the legs suggest the id to me. On Euthamia graminifolia.

Female. Most Andrena I saw this year had plain black abdomens. A few, like this one, had white hair bands.

Female on ceanothus. When I took these photos I was seeing many Andrena. My notes indicate that this one was quite small.
