bombus hypnorum

Great photo!
The bees in my garden have also been identified as bombus hypnorum, and are a bit different. They have plain orange thorax (no dark spot) and plain white tail (ie no
stripes). Are there different classes within the colony, with different appearance?....or regional variation?
Mine too have adopted a bird nest box.
