Detail
One of 8 species of the subgenus Alpigenobombus. One of 250 world known species of the genus Bombus, and one of 40 bumblebee species in the fauna of Ukraine. Distribution: Palaearctic Region. [[Bombus wurflenii is confined to the mountains and hills of Europe ; it is absent from the British Isles. and in Russia, it is known from the Ural and the Caucasus. Its presence in Finland is unlikely. As this species is rather widespread in Central Europe and Scandinavia, it has been the topic of many articles and is a rather well known bumblebee. See the synthetic article by Reinig & Rasmont (1988)]].
