All,
I have to do a bee history talk in our bee school on Saturday. I am having several slides showing the modern bee species available and have a question on Russian Bees. What is the Russian Bee subspecies name?
African Bees are Apis Mellifera Scutellata and Italian Bees are Apis Mellifera Lingustica but I cannot find the subspecies name for Russians.
Does anyone know?
Thanks in advance!

Are they not Apis Melliferia Primorsky? I don't know. They are a Cacausian hybrid.

There are also many other African breeds - A. M. Intermissa, A. M. Adonsaii, and A. M. Lamarckii, for example - all of which have been brought in our country in the past. The classic "Africanized" killer bee in pop culture is A. M. Scutellata.
