status

 

Bombus flavidus lutescens (Pérez, 1890) 

It is spread mainly in the Pyrenees (Ornosa & Torres 2009), although there is a quote from the Cantabrian Range ( Obeso 1992). It has an orophilous tendency ( Fig. 7View FIGURE 7), between 1800 and 2520 m.

The last samples ( Fig. 4View FIGURE 4) were collected in a wet alpine pasture in a peatland in the upper limit of a fir-pine area with Abies alba  , Pinus sylvestris  L. and Pinus uncinata  , with scattered patches of creeping juniper scrub, cranberry and heather, among others, also on Vaccinium myrtillus  and Trifolium pratense  at 2020 m.
