BWARS are running their annual monitoring programme of Bombus hypnorum again this year. The aim of this project is to monitor the spread of this recently arrived bumblebee across the country.
The project is announced at www.bwars.com and information on how to submit records is included
The bee is very distinctive indeed: Ginger thorax, Black abdomen and a snow white tip to the tail. There is no other British species with this colour combination at all
Photographs are usually sufficient to confirm identity.
