A identificare

Postby AngelMM » 17 May 2020 19:33

Buona sera,
Thank you for accepting me, this is my first message on the forum. Hope everybody is good there on these sad times of coronavirus.
I founded this beauty rounding and getting into an Osmia nest (probably O. latreillei). I have not too much idea about Chrysididae and don't know if there are a good keys I could use to get to it, so it could be great if somebody can help with it.
It's from Alicante province, Spain, about 500m over sea level, in an almond trees orchard.
Begin of March, 2020, just before the coronavirus hit here and got stuck all at home

Grazie mille

:welcome: Angel!

Thanks for your pictures.
In Spain there's a volume of Fauna Iberica dedicated to Chrysididae, volume 6 by Elvira Mingo.

Your specimen looks like a Chrysura. However I need some more views.
Do you have other pictures?

All the Best

Thank you so much Paolo,
I have these other three pictures on the same day on the same place (almost same time) but I cannot be completely 100% sure it's the same specimen. Seems to be, but I cannot really say so.

Thank you about the idea of Fauna Iberica, one more thing to the wishes list...
Congratulations for this good website
Thank you and best regards
