Bombus ruderarius montanus Lepeletier, 1836 

It has a wider distribution than the nominate subspecies, from the Pyrenees along the Cantabrian Range, to Picos de Europa and Sierra de los Ancares, entering into further south at higher elevations in the Guadalajara, La Rioja, Soria, Segovia and Teruel provinces, from 150 (in the north) to 2200 m ( Ornosa & Ortiz-Sanchez, 2004).

At present it has been collected in the Pyrenees between 1430 and 2300 m ( Fig. 7View FIGURE 7), in forest, upper forest grasslands and bogs and in mixed forests with beech and pine wood of Pinus uncinata  and Pinus sylvestris  with patches of subalpine scrub of Juniperus communis nana Willd.  , Rhododendron ferrugineum  and Calluna vulgaris  (L.) Hull, foraging on Acinos alpinum  (L.), Centaurea scabiosa  L., Cirsium acaule  (L.) Scop., Cirsium monspessulanum  (L.) Hill, Cynoglossum officinale  L., Echium vulgare L.  , Eryngium bourgatii Gouan.  , Eriophorum angustifolium Honck.  , Gentiana lutea  L., Jurinea humilis (Desf.)  DC., Lotus corniculatus  L., Origanum vulgare  L., Phlomis lychnitis  L., Ranunculus acris  L., Rhododendron ferrugineum  L., Silene acaulis  (L.) Jacq., Trifolium pratense L.  , Trifolium repens L.  and Vicia cracca L. 

This bee is not regarded as being scarce or threatened ( Table 2), but exhibits greater orophilous tendency ( Fig. 7View FIGURE 7).
