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.

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.
