    B. fervidus and B. pensylvanicus males can be very similar and difficult to identify based on morphology. Yellow individuals of B. californicus ,often considered a suspecies of B. fervidus, can be very similar to B. fervidus but usually can be differentiated based on the presence of black hairs on the terga

Yellow bumble bee

Status: Common in the western U.S., possibly declining in the eastern U.S.

Select food plant genera: Cirsium, Penstemon, Phacelia, Helianthus, Dipsacus, Trifolium

Tongue Length: Long

Distribution: Found throughout most of the continental U.S. except for west of the Sierra-Cascade Crest; may be conspecific with B. californicus

Can be confused with the yellow form of B. californicus as well as B. appositusThorax anterior to black band between wing bases yellow, scutellum and T1-4 completely yellow, T5 black, face long.

Mid leg basitarsus with the distal posterior corner sharply pointed (may be hidden by hair). Cheek longer than broad. Hair of the face and top of head predominantly black with yellow sometimes intermixed. On the side of the thorax, the lower anterior surface predominantly yellow, corbicular fringes black. Hair length short and even.

No females in California can be assigned to consanguineus. Thus, its subspecific status is not appropriate. Hobbs (1966a) described the biology of B. cali-fornicus and documented the ecological differences in nest habitats for caltfbrnicus (wooded areas of the foothills) and Jervidus (prairie) in southern Alberta. He also found that Psithyrus insubris and P. suckleyi females had invaded nests of B. caltfbr-nicus% and the former species produced some adults.

Discussion. B. fervithts is most closely related to 5. callfornicus, and may be separated from it by the characters listed in the discussion of that species. The color pattern of B. fervidus is uniform in California. The biology of this species is discussed by Hobbs (1966a). He found two Psithyrus insuiaris females in B. Jervidus nests, but no adults were produced, and that the conopid fly Physocephala texana killed two queens.

Description. Body size medium to large for queen and male; workers of all sizes repre- sented. Head elongate; malar space about 1.5 times longer than broad in female, 1.25 times longer than wide in male. Tongue long. Colour as in Figure 20. In some individuals of all castes, the interalar band is indistinctly defined toward the wing bases with yellow and black hairs intermixed; in a few individuals the band is reduced to a trace of black pile between wing bases.
