Bombus (Subterraneobombus) fragrans

(Pallas, 1771)

Author(s) : Rasmont P
As B. fragrans is the tallest bumblebee of the West-Palaarctic and it is easy to recognise. It extends from Lower Austria in the west to Inner Mongolia in the east and from the regions of Kazan (Russia) and Moscow to the Great Taurus in Anatolia. In Europe, its distribution is discontinuous, with a western isolate in Lower Austria and Hungary and an oriental zone in the Ukraine. The species is uncommon.
