Chrysura purpureifrons ?

Postby gbooth » 07 May 2021 10:01

Hi there, here another Chrysura shot yesterday (06/05/2021). Quite small size and thin. I am not sure about the ID, it is similar to one I shot in Sierra Nevada, which was ID as possible C. pseudodichroa, but this one is slightly different.

looks like a male Chrysis varidens to me, do you have any pictures of the abdominal tip, to see if it has 4 weak teeth or prominences?

Thanks Alex,
Here you have the apical tergite
I have shot Chrysis varidens before and I remember the teeth much more clear, being quite wide.

Hi All,

yes, I think that this is an undescribed species living in S Spain and Morocco.
It's a Chrysura.

Cheers

Wow Paolo,
That is exciting, I wish I could be more helpful with this species, but I never sample any, only take a fast shot, sometimes in the middle of my field geology classes....
Cheers,
Guillermo

Here is a similar specimen shot in Sierra Nevada. Although, different color in femur and tegula.
