About this book

An illustrated identification guide to the bumblebees of Britain and Ireland. The identification pictures illustrate the colour patterns of each species but do not show differences in body shape. The most commonly encountered colour forms of queens and workers (females) of all species are illustrated.

Using this guide it should be possible to identify most bumblebees you see in the field without the need to collect specimens.
