“Anthidium is a genus of bees often called mason or potter bees, who use conifer resin, plant hairs, mud, or a mix of them to build nests. They are in the family Megachilidae which is cosmopolitan in distribution and made up of species that are mostly solitary bees with pollen-carrying scopea that are only located on the ventral surface of the abdomen. Other bee families have the pollen-carrying structures on the hind legs. Typically species of Anthidium feed on pollen and nectar from plants. They … make the nests in holes in the ground, walls or trees, with hairs plucked from plants.” - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthidium
