Hi, I think there's not enough to see to decide whether it's fimbriatus or major, which looks similar when the wings are moved. B. fimbriatus should have more pattern on the abdomen even if it's worn.
Greetings, Eric

I think this is a worn female Bomblyius major. The wing pattern is not consistent with B. fimbriatus.
