It is hard to be certain without seeing either the details of the front foot or a good view of the end of the abdomen, but M. macularis has somewhat stronger patches and bands of white hair. The hair on the face and end of the abdomen are white in M. macularis, usually quite bright orange in M. maculariformis.

Yes I thought that also from the examples on CNM, but it was closest to this bee.
