The listing of rusty patched bumble bee as an endangered species became effective on March 21, 2017. Pennsylvania is within the historical range of the rusty patched bumble bee; however, since the most recent documented occurrence is from 2006, PA is not considered within the extant range. (For consultation purposes, the extant range is considered observations post-2007.)

Since we do not have any extant records of rusty patched bumble bee, no environmental review polygons will be added to the PA Conservation Explorer (AKA PNDI) or IPaC (for Pennsylvania). All online environmental reviews conducted before today's effective date are still valid for this species in Pennsylvania.

More information on the rusty patched bumble bee can be found here.
