While I personally focus on the Bumblebees of Bavaria and may eventually start a project about them on here, I'm generally interested in all Central European species of Bumblebee across their whole range. This is where you might find me trying to help with identification. Please know: I only identify to the level I'm absolutely confident about, after taking into account all the available evidence. That may include habitat, altitude and phenology. It does not include what everyone else thinks. ;-)

It's summer now. I don't have much time during the season, so I need to focus on my core interests (Bavaria, certain species) and will only have a cursory look at everything else. But feel free to tag me on anything in Central Europe, I'll happily take a look.

My detailed ID stats:

N.B.: My account is named after Bombus wurflenii, my favourite bumblebee. Here's a list of all the ones I've found on iNaturalist that I'm sure of. Most of them were misidentified as something else. If you know the species well, please do help verify them.


wurflenii is not following anyone.
