Chrysis hohmanni ? Fuerteventura

Postby Mirex » 24 Feb 2019 00:11

Would it be possible to ID the species I found in Betancuria (Fuerteventura) on 04-02-2019? The individual was feeding on some Euphorbia plant. Its body length was about 10 mm.

For me here, the postscutellum is angulate : Chrysura sp (radians group).

With this postscutellum, I think of several possibilities : varicornis, sulcata, refulgens, trimaculata (& rufiventris?).

Hi!

Because of the elongate shape of the head, I suppose that this could be another endemic species:
Chrysis hohmanni Linsenmaier.
It belongs to the Chrysis pulchella group and its apical margin of the last tergite is toothless, similarly to Chrysura

Great!

Hmm, can this really be a Chrysis sp in the hydropica-group? (at least it says it's the hydropica-group in Linsenmaiers original description)? The apical pit row is not that deeply set, it's not very short and convexly shaped, the hairs are black on the head+mesosoma, and the habitus really seems like a Chrysura sp close to rufiventris/sulcata. It doesnt perfectly match my one Chrysura rufiventris specimen, but it is close.
