Genus & species Chrysis exsulans Dahlbom, 1854
Species group ignita
Original combination Chrysis exsulans Dahlbom, 1854
Type series Holotypus ♀ (Mus.: Turin)
Original description Mediocris robusta 2 ½ lin. decimal. long. modice punctata cyanea, abdominis segmentis: 1:mo concolore, 2:do et 3:tio igneo-aureis eximie convexis, dentibus apicalibus angustis fortiter spinoides, alarum cellula radiali incompleta.

Patria ignota, forte Bengalia; specimen unicum ut. “Chr. fulgidae varietas” amice communiravit D. Spinola.

Observ. Pictura Chrysidi fulgidae quidem simillima et maxime affinis, attamen notae sequentes Chrysidem exsulantem ut propriam speciem certe distinguunt. Corpus quidem brevius quam in speciminibus normalibus Chrysidis fulgidae sed quoad longitudinem crassius; caput et thorax mediocrius punctata subcoriaceo-rugosa late virescenti-cyanea. Cavitas facialis brevis lata quadrata profunda subtiliter punctulato-coriacea, supra discum fovea centrali, superne distinctius marginata: margine transverso-arcuato. Thorax subbrevis crassus dorsulo gibbo-convexo, suturis medianis tenuibus nigro-aeneis basi fortiter arcuatis. Sternum et pedes viridissime cyanei nitidi. Alae hyalinae, ad costam cellulae radialis nec in basi cellulae cubitalis leviter sordidae; venae mediocres brunneae; cellula radialis brevior, non lanceolata sed latissime triangularis, apice anguste et distincte aperta. Abdomen subrectangulare 1. potius elongato-subquadratum, quoad magnitudinem latius quam in Chrys. fulgida; punctura segmentorum l:mi et 2:di paullulum crassior et magis regularis quam punctura thoracica; segmenta 2:dum et 3:tium convexiora (quam in Chr. fulgida); segmenti 2:di lineola mediana subelevata polita planiuscula; segmentum 3:tium subbreve decurvum, series ante-apicalis foveolis perpaucis circ. 8 magnis profundioribus rotundatis, margo apicalis proprius perbrevis et humilis, dentes angusti cylindraceo-conici fortiter spinoidei, emarginaturae profunde arcuatae: utraque externa latior et paullulum profundior quam centralis. Omnes reliquas notas, in hac descriptione omissas, habet Chryside exsulans cum Chryside fulgida communes.
