We are delighted to introduce you with Bombus interacti!

This enchanting arctic species of bumblebee was discovered by our TA User Group ARCTOSTRESS during their INTERACT Transnational Access supported visit to the Toolik Field Station in Alaska. The group is led by Baptiste Martinet and Pierre Rasmont from the University of Mons in Belgium.

A journal article on the discovery of the species was recently published in the Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society (DOI 10.1093/zoolinnean/zlz041).
