Pseudomalus, Hedychrum,or something else? N Appenines, Italy

Postby briang » 03 Jul 2021 21:10

This medium sized chrysidid was very broad, running and moving in short 20cm flights. It looked a bit like a very large version of Pseudomalus auratus as seen in UK, but the head looks compressed, front to back, and I’m not sure of the genus. Perhaps a Hedychrum? Advice welcome!

Thank you! Slow process trying to learn these without examining specimens…
