Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) Bumblebees (genus Bombus) belong to family Apidae and superfamily Apoidea. The world bumblebee fauna consists of approximately 250 known species. These bees live in different parts of the world such as mountainous parts of Iran and they are known as important pollinators of natural and greenhouse plants. During lately decade, there have been some modifications in classification of these bees such as justifying in number of subgenera to 15 subgenera and some species names known as synonyms and called as one species name. During years 2008 to 2015 by sampling from various regions of Iran, more localities of living area of these bees determined. These regions were in provinces of Kohgiluyeh & Boyer Ahmad (Kakan, Sisakht), Fars (Sepidan, Sarbast), Chahannahal & Bakhtiari (Cheshmeh Shaykhalikhan, Baba Haidar, Farsan) and West Azarbaydjan (Unnia, Silvana). Also in these samplings most of casts of various species were completed which now deposited in Iranian Pollinator Insects Museum, in faculty of Agriculture of Yasouj University. Confirmations of species ofnew records for Iranian bumblebees carried out by Pierre Rasmont in Laboratory of Zoology of Mons University, Belgium. New records were B. (Melanobombus) sichelii B . (Psithyrus) rupestris and B. (Thoracobombus) velox. The first species, B. (Mel.) sichelli, was collected from Tehran (Dizin), Golestan (Gorgan, Shah kuh) , Ardabil (Sabalan, Alvares. Sarein, Moeil), Ghazvin (Moalem kellayeh, Verk). The second species, B. (Ps .) rupestris, was collected from Ghazvin (Moalem kellayeh, Verk), and the third one, B. (Th.) velox. collected from Alborz (Chalous road, Kamarbon. I1eka), Ghazvin (Moalem kellayeh, Verk). According to the last changing in taxonomy of bumblebees by now existence of 34 species and 11 subgenera in Iran are continued. Final list of these bees is as bellows. Furthermore, specimens of B. (Mendacibombus) handlirschianus which is a rare species and only had been recorded from north of Iran by Skorikov in 1938 were collected from Ardabil Province (Moeil,Alvares, Shabil, andKasra mountains).
