Hello Jules

thanks for joining the forum.
Do you mind me asking the date and location of this record?

This looks suspiciously like the rare Shrill Carder bee- Bombus sylvarum

Congratulations, elaine

Hi Elaine,

thanks for your reply and great news.  I was hoping that it was a Shrill Carder.  I monitor bees and other insects at Carymoor Environmental Centre:  ST617311
The dates these 2 individuals were photographed were: 25/6/13 and 16/7/13
If you need any further info please do not hesitate to contact me or: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
Thanks again,
best wishes,
