Thank you Paolo,

I have thought of marginata myself but 1st flagellomere looks so different on other C. marginata images on the net that I got completely confused. So it is just the angle of view.

Have a good weekend

Hi Tamas,

you're right.
Thanks for pointing out this feature.
Actually I think that this is the female of Chrysis taczanovskii.
This is visible for the transverse frontal carina and the shortened malar spaces.
These characters are not clearly visibile in the picture because of the angle, however this is not C. marginata.
Do you have other views?

Ciao
Paolo
