Description:

Not sure what variety this one is, as it has a buff tail, but only a very slight marking behind the thorax. I was going to go for Terretris.

White-tailed or Buff-tailed Bumble Bee?

After spending a day at the Entomology Department of the World Museum, Liverpool, I think micoscopy is the key to identification. Regards
