I have never heard it called that before - normally it would be the CCB. But there are no rigid rules about English names for bees, and a lot of bee-folk would be roasted on a spit rather than use them at all. I am not one of them.

I just googled 'bumblebee species ireland' to get some images as I know nothing about them, I found a likeness for my bee on here-
I also saw the name 'common carder bee' used under an illustration of the queen of the species, in the same document.
Does my scientific name appear to match the species of bee I have photographed? I really dont know but I thought the likeness wasn't too bad.
Yet another species was titled 'blonde tailed bumblebee'.
I think you are right. It does not have the jizz of muscorum, the other likely candidate in Ireland. I am not sure from the image if it has black hairs on the abdomen or is just worn. Not an easy trio, the brown carders (pasc, musc and humilis). I had never heard of 'blonde-tailed' either - this site is educational!
Thanks for this Syrphus,
Hopefully a few agreements will confirm in due course- or an alternative may be suggested...
Yes that document may contain little used names.
