Chrysis sp. from the viridula group.

Postby Thibaultlp » 08 Jul 2021 15:01

Hi again !

This one was caught in late may on a twig fallen on the floor in Plan-d'Aups-Sainte-Baume(83640), in the south of France, not far from Marseille.

I don't have any idea for it's identification, he's very smaller and differentely coloured than my males of viridula (especially the first tergite redder), maybe it can be the male of Chrysis consanguinea ?

If the picture of genitalias isn't sufficient I will be able to take another one better.

Hi Thibault,

yes, they are enough for ID.
It's a male of Chrysis daphnis.
And the previous one is a female of Chrysis consanguinea.

You can compare the punctation of their abdomen. In Chrysis daphnis punctures are small and dense on the second tergum. In Chrysis consanguinea they are distinctly larger, with larger interspaces compared to the other species. Check this.

Cheers
Paolo

Thanks again Paolo !

Indeed, the very dense punctation on the second tergum caught my attention.
The viridula group seems quite diversificated in the south of France, there is probably other species to find !
