Chrysis ignita group

Just noting that this is a member of the Chrysis ignita group rather than Chrysis ignita in the strict sense, which is one of several microspecies which cannot be distinguished without very detailed examination.

ID Comment

not ssp.... but spp.!

The Chrysis ignita complex contains at least half a dozen taxa. They are, frankly, a bit of a nightmare and in urgent need of some DNA work to sort things out.
