Vogt, 1909

Bombus brodmanni belongs to the pomorum-group (formerly sg. Rhodobombus).
This is a very rare species with a questionable status. The nominal subspecies lives in N.-E. Turkey, from Erzincan to the Ararat Mt. and in the west of the Caucasus, in the regions of Teberda and of Mt. Elbrus. The ssp. denesi, from W.Anatolia, is presently known only through its holotype.
