Hi Guillermo,

I exclude C. sehestedti, because the male has green-blue forebody (head and thorax).
C. sehestedti is very large, like Chrysis integra, about 1 cm.

In Southhern Spain there are several similar species (Chrysis daphnis, Chrysis consanguinea, Chrysis vareana) difficult to separate without the specimen in your hands.

Thanks Paolo, and also for the other above.
I have many photos of this specimen, if you need any particular part of the body for its ID just tell me.
