The male of pennsylvanicus can be easily confused with that of fervidus (Fabricius). In the latter, however, the malar space is slightly longer than basal width of mandible, and the eyes only about three and one half times length of malar space: the short greyish pubescence on face and cheeks is much less evident, giving the head a much more definitely black appearance; segment 2 of the flagellum is distinctly shorter than the 1st, and the two combined are distinctly longer than segment 3; the scutellum, pleura and propodeum are definitely yellow pubescent, with no black hairs evident except on posterior surface of propodeum, just below the dorsal triangle; the wings are somewhat less deeply infuscated; the hind tibiae are somewhat more broadly dilated apically, with both the posterior and anterior fringes black.

Dates Collected. Queens of Bombus americanorum have been taken in Nebraska as early as April 25 (Lincoln) and as late as November 10 (Lincoln). Workers have been taken in Nebraska as early as May 14 (Lincoln) and as late as November 12 (Lincoln). Males have been taken as early as July 12 (Lincoln, Mitchell) and as late as October 3 (Lincoln ). Queens are most abundant in May and June, workers in August and September and males in September and October in Nebraska .

Morphologically, no constant significant characters have been discovered that will separate this taxon from the nominate subspecies (cf. under Comments). Color: Pattern similar to that of nominate sub­ species except scutellum all yellow (rarely intermixed with any black hairs), the yellow through­ out is (usually) of deeper or richer shade. Also, refer to Comments.

Worker. Measurements similar to those of this caste under nominate subspecies. Color: Similar to that of the nominate subspecies except for few deviations noted above under queen. Also refer to Comments.

Male. Length, 19.0 mm; width at wing bases, 8.0 mm; abdomen, 10.0 mm, width across T2, 9.0 mm; front wing length, 18.0 mm, width, 6.5 mm. Morphologically like the nominate sub­ species. Color: Similar to that of the nominate subspecies except the yellow is deeper in shade (or even tawny golden-yellow), the scutellum (usually) completely yellow or predominantly so, the interalar black band usually more definite and often wider, abdominal T5-7 and legs entirely black. Wings usually darker than those of the nominate subspecies. Genitalia and abdominal sterna 7-8 like those of p. pennsylvanicus (PI. X III).
