Bombus affinis? - Bombus griseocollis

Bombus affinis? - Bombus griseocollis
Annville, Lebanon County, Pennsylvania, USA
August 4, 2011
I was looking at some older photos for a newsletter picture, and I noticed the rust patchy on what I thought was just a (I think that is T2?) Bombus impatiens. Could it actually have been Bombus affinis? It doesn't look quite right by the picture. Unfortunately, it was the only shot that I took. Thank you.

Moved from ID Request.
