Hedychrum nobile/niemelai male?

Postby pietsje » 08 Jun 2020 16:44

I would like to know if I'm correct.
Date 6/6 and 7/6, location Southern part of The Netherlands,
Habitat: sandy hill with nests of several digger wasps (Lestica, Cerceris, Philanthus triangulum, small digger wasps like possible Lindenius, Crossocerus and other wasps like Smicromyrme rufipes).

The female H. nobile/niemelai was also spotted here. But I'm in doubt about the H. nobile/niemelai 'male'. It could also be another Hedychrum species.

I spotted several species of Chrysididae on the sandy hill, going in nesting cells. So possibly I'm confused :?
Kind regards,

Yes, looks like male and female of either nobile or niemelai, but I suppose the "male" could also be either sex of gerstaeckeri, it's hard to tell what sex it is as its not possible to make out if it has black hairs on not on the head

Thank you Alex, I'll take notice of the black hairs in the future.
