Abstract:

Molecular characterization of bumble bees has been carried out in the Department of Entomology, Assam Agricultural University during the period 2015-2018. During the investigation, 5 (Five) species of bumble bees viz. Bombus orientalis Smith, B. buccinatoris Smith, B. tunicatus Smith, B. haemorrhoidalis Smith and B. miniatus Bingham have been recorded. Similarity matrix for Jaccard’s Coefficient based on SSR banding of 5 bumble bee species ranged from 0.062 to 0.921 i.e. 6.2% to 92.1%. The dendrogram readily separated the bumble bee species into two main clusters (A and B). The cluster A includes Bombus orientalis and B. buccinatori while cluster B includes B. tunicatus, B. haemorrhoidalis and B. miniatus.
