Bombus humilis quasimuscorum (Vogt, 1909) 

It is widely distributed in the northern half of the peninsula, between 150 and 2000 m ( Ornosa & Ortiz-Sánchez 2004).

At present it has been collected in Pyrenean forest and supraforestal grassland, more rarely in the latter, and in open areas, between 850 and 1950 m ( Fig. 7View FIGURE 7) on Acinos alpinum  (L.), Centaurea scabiosa  L., Cirsium monspessulanum  (L.) Hill, Echium plantagineum (Nox.)  , Echium vulgare L.  , Epilobium angustifolium  L., Eryngium bourgatii Gouan.  , Fragaria vesca  L., Lotus corniculatus  L., Malva sylvestris  L., Medicago sativa L.  , Melilotus officinalis  L., Mentha longifolia  (L.) Hud., Origanum vulgare  L., Reseda lutea  L., Rhododendron ferrugineum  L., Rubus ulmifolius Schott  , Silene acaulis  (L.) Jacq., Taraxacum officinale Wigg.  , Trifolium pratense L.  , Trifolium repens L.  and Vicia cracca L. 

According to the current data, this species exhibits greater orophilous tendency in its lower level ( Fig. 7View FIGURE 7), but it is not regarded as being scarce or threatened ( Table 2).
