Very similar to Ammophila, and often confused with that genus. Females of some species are entirely black, males almost always bi-colored black and red.
This pair was visiting flowers in an open area adjacent to a campground in a mixed pine-oak woodland in North Cheyenne Canon Park.
Male is on top of female in this image, gripping her only with his jaws.
