This doesn't appear to be Chrysis fulgida as the first tergite is the same ruby colour as the second. It would be a blue colour similar to that of the thorax in Chrysis fulgida. This is one of the other
Chrysidinae, most of which you can't do by photos and even the more knowledgeable recorders struggle even with a microscope and key.

Just saw the new ID. So not even a Chrysidinae but within the Chrysididae. I learn something new every time I visit iSpot :)
Chrysidae are difficult to identify even with a proper key and microscope.
Very photogenic creatures though.

Thanks Stuart; good to know there are some straightforward Chrysidae. I have not seen this species, but have picked up H.ardens at a T.pompiliformis sites. (data with BWARS)
