I collected this Chrysididae in the desert, in the South of Morocco, not far from the frontier with Mauritania. Any idea concerning the identification ? Thank you !
(size = 9 mm)

Dear Philippe :welcome:

thanks for the nice pictures of your specimen.
It belongs to the Chrysis pallidicornis group.
At the moment I cannot tell you more than this.
It's one of the most complicated groups in N Africa, because still missing of a revision of the type material.

All the best!

Dear Paolo,
Thank you so much for your help ! Unfortunately this is the only specimen collected, on Acacia flowers ...
Best wishes,
