Locals told me this bumble bee was called Chiquizá but I've been able to find this online. I probably did not get a good enough photo to ID, but it was a really cool bumblebee to see.
Probably buff tailed bumblebee.
While walking along Sunshine Bay Track saw this black bumblebee with a white tail. What kind would it be? It was in an earlier observation, but still waiting to hear back, so thought I'd put it back on - so I can get a definite id. Thanks in advance.
One of the Megabombus subgenus species.
A bumblebee is any member of the bee genus Bombus, in the family Apidae. There are over 250 known species, existing primarily in the Northern Hemisphere although they also occur in South America. They have been introduced to New Zealand and the Australian state of Tasmania.
