A Megachilidae Bee on Meganissi.

A solitary bee seen on the Greek Island of Meganissi in May was this rather demonic looking bee.The best identification I can make is a member of the Megachilidae family of bees,more commonly known as Mason,Leafcutter,and Resin bees.Further enquires have found it to be subgenus chalicodoma.
