Hi Josef

it belongs to the Chrysis ignita group, but it is not ruddii, even if it has very long hairs.
At the moment I don't have time to check for a better ID, I'll see in the next days

:D you cannot imagine in Italy...

Our temperatures are between 38°C and 42°C + humidity = 41-45° on our skin! :o

I'm not looking for Chrysidids. The next week I'll search for megerlei and other species. And I hope temperatures will be better than this week.

Same hot air recently went over Estonia too, however despite the forecast promised temperatures around 30 degrees the maximum that I saw was 25. Now it is rather chilly.

About the photos. I would say it is actually Chrysis ignita form B (different species from form A). Several characters suggest that: long white hairs, large punctures on second tergum, swollen edges of third tergum, uninterrupted frontal carina... to name more important ones.
