Can anyone identify this bee?
I suspect it is one of the cuckoo bumblebees, and I am leaning towards Bombus campestris, the field cuckoo bumblebee.
But I'd like the opinion of 'Bombuslucorum', since B. c.'s relatives are similar, and since the markings of each species vary.
I had looked at Psithyrus campestris in my collins guide. Still unsure though. will check out the other sites you have linked. This was photgraphed last September if that helps.
