Bombus (Thoracobombus) mlokosievitzii

Radoszkowski, 1877

Author(s) : Rasmont P
The nominal ssp. of Bombus mlokosievitzi lives mainly in the mountains of NE. Anatolia, but some specimens have been encountered in the north-west of this region. The ssp. vogtiellus is found in the Balkan Mountains, in Macedonia, Greece and Bulgaria and in the mountains of N. Anatolia, from the Bursa region in the west to the surroundings of Erzincan in the east. The ssp. convergens lives in the Caucasus.
In Anatolia and seemingly in the Caucasus, Bombus mlokosievitzi is common. It is always uncommon in the Balkan.
