Abstract

Bombus rufocinctus Cresson (Hymenoptera: Apidae: Bombini) is reported from Pennsylvania for the first time, new state record. A single female specimen was collected in a multi-colored bucket trap in 2017. This new record fills in gaps in the known range of this species in northeastern North America.
