For the taxonomic distinction of Bombus lapponicus (Fabricius, 1973) and B. monticola Smith, 1849, sensu Svensson 1979, suitable differences were observed in measurements of mouthparts, position of ocelli and male genitalia, but no taxonomic difference was observed in the shape of sting sheaths in queens. These two forms have a wide sympatric range in Scandinavia and the present results support the recent suggestion that B. lapponicus auctt. includes two closely related species in Fennoscandia.
