Bombus mendax, from here.

Belongs within: Corbiculata.

The Bombini, bumble bees, are a group of robust, densely pubescent bees found in Eurasia and the Americas (and introduced elsewhere), characterised by a combination of corbiculae on the hind tibiae and hind tibial spurs (Michener 1965). Typical bumble bees belong to the genus Bombus; the genus Psithyrus includes social parasites of Bombus species.
