Apidae
The Buff-Tailed bumblebee (Bombus terrestris) is a relatively large bumblebee species. It is fairly common and is an important pollinator for fruit trees. It prefers to forage on flowers with short corollas but can easily steal nectar, without pollination, from some flowers (such as Antirhinnum sp.)
