status

 

Bombus (Psithyrus) bohemicus Seidl, 1837 

Distribuion: Throughout Europe, though avoiding warmer areas such as the Mediterranean, through the Palearctic to North America ( Rasmont and Iserbyt 2014).

New data: PORTUGAL: Trás-os-Montes, São Martinho de Anta , Vila Real, undated, 3♂, leg. C. & O. Vogt, Natu- ralis, Leiden, ZMA.INS.638813  .

Notes: The specimens are undated, though it is noted that they were accepted into the Amsterdam Museum collection in 1960. Vogt was very active in the early part of the 20 th century, so the specimens may well be over 100 years old. Two known hosts, B. lucorum  (L.) and B. magnus (Vogt, 1911)  are present in northern Portugal ( Baldock et al. 2018).
