Rusty Patched Bumble Bee

(Reuters) - The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Wednesday proposed listing the rusty patched bumble bee, a prized but vanishing pollinator once widely found in the upper Midwest and Northeastern United States, for federal protection as an endangered species.
One of numerous wild bee species facing sharp declines, the rusty patched bumble bee is the first in the continental United States formally proposed for listing under the U.S. Endangered Species Act, according to the Xerces Society, which petitioned for its protection.
Once abundant and widespread with hundreds of populations across its range, the rusty patched bumble bee's numbers and distribution have plunged by more than 90 percent since the late 1990s, according to the Fish and Wildlife Service.
