Red Areas = High Potential Zones: rusty patched bumble bee likely present

Yellow Areas = Low Potential Zones: rusty patched bumble bee not likely to be present.

  • Yellow Areas = Primary Dispersal Zones
    • These are the areas surrounding High Potential Zones (red areas).
    • The model to create the Primary Dispersal Zones considers the maximum dispersal potential of the species from sites with recent (2007- current) records. See illustration below.
    • These areas are important for conservation actions and additional survey effort.
    • Section 7 consultation and Incidental Take Permits are not needed in these areas.
    • We recommend recovery permits for surveys and non-lethal survey techniques in yellow areas.
  • Blue Areas = Uncertain Zones
    • These are areas with slightly older records (detections between 2000 and 2006).
    • The model to create the Uncertain Zones considers the maximum dispersal potential of the species from sites with slightly older (2000 - 2006) records, but without sufficient survey effort to conclude the species’ extirpation from the area. See illustration below.
    • These areas are important for conservation actions and additional survey efforts.
    • Section 7 consultation and Incidental Take Permits are not needed in these areas.
    • We recommend recovery permits for surveys and non-lethal survey techniques in blue areas

Gray Areas = Historical Range: rusty patched bumble bee not present

  • Rusty patched bumble bees have not been observed or collected in these areas since before the year 2000.
  • Section 7 consultation and Incidental Take Permits are not needed.
  • No permits for surveys are needed.

You may also use IPaC, which is an online project review tool to screen your project location for the presence of any listed species and other resources.
