I only found some old drawings of Monedula sp. and possibly Monedula punctata, which is now in Stictia genus.
Stictia signata:
So, looking at the markings yours easily might be Stictia cf. punctata.

Must be a Crabronidae, possibly Bembicinae, Bembicini. Not sure what kind of Bembix sp. are around.
