Identification
Extracted from Bumble Bees and Cuckoo Bumble Bees of California by Thorp, R. (1983).


Discussion. B. huntii belongs to the group of species which includes B. btfarius and vosnesenskii, and can be separated from both by the bright red hair covering its metasomal tergites 2 and 3, and the completely yellow hair of the scutellum. This species is extremely uniform in color pat-tern, with only occasional specimens having the red metasomal hairs fading to yellowish. Nests of this species are discussed by Medler (1959) and Hobbs (1967b).
