Chrysis schencki?

Postby Ruurd Jelle » 03 Aug 2019 21:12

Unlucky lately, they sit very short but which specie has only red Pink on last segment?
Netherlands

Maybe female Chrysis schencki? Borealis is not in the Netherlands

Thanks al lot!

Colour variations are not common in cuckoo wasps, however sometimes can be found in living specimens and in dry specimens. Some of the most famous cases are the holotypes of Chrysis terminata, Chrysis ignita lugubris andChrysis longula aeneopaca. For this reason I do not trust so much on colours.

However there are a few species within the Chrysis ignita group that show a peculiar colouration. Besides Chrysis fulgida and immaculata, you can easily identify Chrysis clarinicollis male and Chrysis valida female based on their metasomal colouration. However this is not one of these cases.

We need some morphological characters.

To bad is was one picture and gone, looking at it I Saw no fulgida this time. Size and shape was like fulgida. The other species in the garden is the unidentified ignita group which has full pink ass. So it would be another I thought and with not all species present in Holland , any Idea is welcome.
