Thank you Milo van Loon for confirming the id of this species for us
General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
We thought this was a Masked Bee (Hylaeus sp).
We discovered the error when we caught & id'ed our 2nd specimen.
We beleive they are different species as the base of the antennae is a different colour.
