Bombus tanguticus Morawitz
tanguticus Morawitz, 1887:200

TAXONOMIC STATUS: Queens of B. tanguticus are morphologicaly very distinctive (discussed in Williams, 1991 [pdf]), so much so that Pittioni (1939d) considered the species warranted a subgenus of its own. The species is very rare in collections and the male remains apparently unknown (the species occurs at high altitudes on the Tibetan Plateau). Workers have recently been collected again in Qinghai.

DISTRIBUTION: Oriental Region.
