Observ. Quod magnitudinem Chrysidi austriacae proxima. Corpus robustum subcylindricum crasse punctatum, cano- et cinereo-pubescens. Caput orbiculatum confertim modice punctatum subrugulosum, ante et post stemmata 1. viridi- 1. viridi-aureo-irroratum. Vertex depresso - convexus. Cavitas facialis magna, superne per marginem elevatum stemmati approximatum limitata, infra marginem illum punctata, tum subtilissime transverse strigosa et punctulato-coriacea lateribus cano-sericeis. Antennae robustae cano-sericeo puberulae perbreve: scapus longissimus dimidiam flagelli longitudinem aequans, totus viridis; pedicellus, et articulus 3:tius elongatus, uno latere virides, altero fusci, reliqua pars antennae testacea. Frons et facies paullum angustiores quam in aliis speciebus, unde oculi nonnihil approximati obveniunt; oculi magni exserti ovales. Clypeus magnus irregulariter subtrapezinus viridis nitidus sparse punctatus et punctulatus, convexo-depressus, ante apicem area semicirculari declivi aureo-splendida, margo apicalis transversus leniter emarginato-arcuatus, margo basalis ad centrum (propter antennas) bis arcuato-emarginatus, angulis laterali-basalibus latis arcuato-obtusis. Mandibulae basi virides plus minus aureo-splendentes, apice brunnescentes; maxillae palpi labiumque brunnea. Thorax ovato-subcylindricus, confertim crasse punctatus. Pronotum subgibbum supra viridi-cyaneum sulco mediano latiusculo, antice utrinque striola aut macula transversa 1. laetius viridi 1. aurea, postice utrinque juxta marginem sulco transverso obsoleto: truncatura antica polita violascens. Dorsuli area media virescenti- cyanea, areae laterales 1. virides 1. viridi-aureae et tantum margine laterali externo cyaneae. Scutellum et mesopleurae viridia aureo-irrorata, metanotum cyaneum 1. viridi- 1. aureo-irroratum. Sternum viridi-cyaneum. Pedes virides tarsis testaceis. Tegulae ovales virides. Alae hyalinae, in cellulis radiali, cubitali et discoidali paullulum sordidae; venae brunneae; vena radialis ab apice alae longe remota, hinc cellula radialis laete aperta; haec ceterum sublanceolata; vena costalis mox post angulum venae radialis evanescit. Abdomen robustum, supra modice convexum, infra subplanum, ambitu subrectangulum, latitudine thoracis, longitudine capitis thoracisque simul sumtarum, segmenta dorsalia l:mum et 2:dum purpureo-aurea, viridi -resplendentia, confertissime crasse punctato-rugulosa: punctis rotundis politis virescentibus, rugulis microscopice punctulatis aureo-purpurea; segmenti l:mi impressio basalis et segmenti 2:di margo basalis violascentes limbo tenuissimo viridi; segmentum 2:dum duplo longius quam l:mum, vix ultra, lineola mediana planiuscula antice distinctiore postice evanescente; segmentum 3:tium nonnihil majus quam l:mum, parte basali depresso-convexum sparse punctatum subopacum saturate cyaneum: margo callosus mediam segmenti partem occupans et ab uno margine laterali in alterum extensus validus transverso-arcuatus, confertissime punctulatus nitidus viridi-aureus; reliqua pars segmenti-viridis: series ante-apicalis, callum immediate sequens, regularis foveolis 20 profundis subaequalibus subovatis approximatis, particula apicalis (infra seriem) planiuscula sparse punctulata nitida, margo apicalis summus tenuissimus angustissimus fusco - brunneus transverso-obtusus, vix nisi obsoletissime arcuatus latitudine abdominis. Venter depresso-planus pube subtilissima adpressa cano-sericea adspersus, laete viridis ex aureo nonnihil resplendens.
