I think it is B. bimaculatus queen

I got to the part of the key that separated B. bimaculatus from B. vagans and chose B. vagans based on the T2 pile beings yellow at the sides.
Notably -- I collected this bee on Saturday. It spent the afternoon in soapy water in a vial, underwent towel drying, alcohol dip, more towel drying, and then blow drying, then laid on the counter until I got around to pinning it that night. Keyed it out the next day then stuck the pin in some styrofoam and into a box. Just now -- another 24 hrs later -- got it out to look again and it is WIGGLING around on the pin. Now that is tenacity!
