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.

Cheers
Paolo

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.
Cheers,
Guillermo
