B. (Subterreneobombus) borealis, not B. fervidus
fervidus has an all black head and more yellow on the thorax

I've moved these images to the Bombus page because there is no Guide Page for the species B. borealis. Hopefully an editor will create one.

 
Thank you!
The Natural History Museum web page for Subterraneobombus shows that one species of Subterranobombus is known to live in Newfoundland.  If this image is of a Bombus (St.) borealis Kirby, 1837-272, then I guess this must be the species that they are talking about. Thank you for the correction.

Bombus fervidus (Apidae)
Bumblebee. The sacs are the pollen collected.

 
Thank You! - Moved
Thanks for the ID and the comment on the sacs.
