Synonymy Ichneumon splendens Fabricius, 1798: 229 (♂).

Cleptes Chyzeri Mocsáry, 1889: 50, ♀. Lectotypus (desig. Móczár 1962: 119); Szolloske (Budapest).
Cleptes caucasicus Semenov, 1920: 322, 3 ♂♂, 2 ♀♀. Lectotypus ♀; Georgia (St. Petersburg).

Systematic notes The interpretation given by Linsenmaier to the species names of this Genus is different from Móczár's one. We follow Móczár's one, that is:
C. pallipes = C. semiauratus sensu Linsenmaier;
C. semiauratus = C. splendens sensu Linsenmaier;
C. splendidus = C. consimilis sensu Linsenmaier (1959a) and C. chevrieri sensu Linsenmaier (1997).

C. splendens is synonym of semiauratus (L.) in Kimsey & Bohart (1990).
C. splendens and consimilis are synonyms of C. splendidus according to Strumia, 2001.
