bumblebee chart

Chart depicting mimetic color forms and their ranges of the Southeast Asian bumblebee species Bombus trifasciatus. While the color pattern highlighted in red and reddish gray in central China is argued to be a “ground plan” color pattern for bumblebees and is not strongly mimetic, the rest of the color patterns are all part of different local mimicry complexes.
