Bombus lucorum (White-tailed bumblebee; White tailed bumblebee; Small Earth Humble-bee)

Wikipedia Abstract

The white-tailed bumblebee (Bombus lucorum) is a species of bumblebee, widespread and common throughout Europe. However, the name has been widely used for many of a complex of nearly identical-looking or cryptic species of bumblebees. A recent review of all of these species worldwide has helped to clarify its distribution in Europe and northern Asia, almost to the Pacific. In the north, it reaches the Barents Sea.
