Abstract: I compiled data from several museum collections to map historical distributions of species of bumble bees across Texas. Bombus auricomus, B. bimaculatus, B. fervidus, B. fraternus, B. griseocollis, B. impatiens, B. pensylvanicus, B. sonorus, and B. variabilis were conīŦrmed from the state based on vouchered specimens.

As currently understood, the bumble bee fauna of Texas consists of nine documented species.
