Some Chrysids of Southern France

Postby Frank_Canon » 02 Jun 2022 02:17

Hello, during almost 3 weeks, I've been searching some beetles in S. France and also some Cuckoo wasps. Here is a few of them (I saw more but I didn't photograph much the species that I already found the previous years).

Feel free to correct me if I made some mistakes in the ID's.

Chrysura cuprea :





Chrysura candens :



Pseudochrysis [Pseudospinolia] uniformis :



Chrysis cf. valesiana :

:wohow:

simply ... no words ... :beer:


I have only two comments:
Spintharina versicolor: it's a Chrysis varidens
Chrysis graelsii: with that colour it's very likely Chrysis valesiana.

Congrats, beautiful pictures for beautiful species ;)

Many thanks Paolo! Actually the tarsi are dark so it is not Spintharina of course :doh:

Great if it could be C. valesiana, obviously this one is different from the C. graelsii found the previous years at the same place. Though except the color, I couldn't find much infos about the differences...

Here are 2 specimens for which I struggle.. I would say either C. continentalis or C. insperata/rutilans, what your guess ?

Specimen N°1 (T3 was very dark under daylight) :
