Abejorro

Bombus terrestris

Description:

is one of the most numerous bumblebee species in Europe. The queen is 2–2.7 cm long, while the workers are 1½–2 cm. The latter are characterized by their white-ended abdomens and look (apart from their yellowish bands being darker in direct comparison) just like those of the white-tailed bumblebee, B. lucorum, a close relative. The queens of B. terrestris have the namesake buff-white abdomen ("tail") tip; this area is white like in the workers in B. lucorum.

Estimado Hans, mi nombre es Jose Montalva y estamos investigando la interacciones de los abejorros en Chile, pues posiblemente nuestro abejorro nativo se encuentre amenazado. Quisiera saber si quisieras ayudarnos compartiendo tu foto con grupo Salvemos nuestro abejorro de Facebook o a www.flickr.com/groups/2660067@N23/ lo cual nos ayudara a tener una mejor visión de la distribución de las especies. De Antemano Muchas gracias Jose
