status

 

Bombus rupestris rupestris (Fabricius 1793) 

It is distributed in the Pyrenees, Sierra de Béjar and Moncayo between 800 and 1800 m of altitude ( Tkalců 1962, Ornosa & Ortiz-Sánchez 2004). Only four individuals were recorder in historical data ( Ornosa 1984, Castro 1996).

At present, it has been scarcely collected between 1440 and 1750 m ( Fig. 7View FIGURE 7), in a grassland, in a beech forest and pine wood of Pinus uncinata  and Pinus sylvestris  with patches of subalpine scrub of Juniperus communis nana Willd.  , foraging on Eryngium bourgatii Gouan.  , Lotus corniculatus  L., Trifolium pratense L.  and Trifolium repens L. 

According our current data, B. rupestris  is rare and shows an orophilous tendency ( Table 2).
