Genus & species Chrysis cerastes Abeille, 1877
Species group cerastes
Original combination Chrysis cerastes Abeille, 1877
Type series Syntypi ♀♂ (Mus.: Paris)
Original description Long. 6,5 a 9 mil. - Mediocre elongata, viridi-micans, crasse et dense punctata, vertice, prothoracis emarginatura antica, mesonoti area media lateribusque externarum, postscutello et cruribus caeruleis, abdominis dorso virescente aureo, aequaliter ac dense punctato, segmento solo 1° crassius, dentibus apicalibus parum acutis intermediis paru minter se distantibus, ventre viridi-igneo micante, ad basim et apicem nigro maculato.
Rare espèce dont je n'ai pris que quatre sujets, à Lorgues et à la Penne, sur des troncs de chene. Réellement distincte de l'ignita et de ses agnates par les proportions du troisième article antennaire, qui égale le deuxième et est plus court que le quatrième, au lieu d'être beaucoup plus long que le deuxième et aussi moins long que le quatrième. Je me suis demande si cette espèce, si distincte par la forme de ses antennes, n'etait pas la comparata Lep. Mais, à mon avis, cette dernière espèce doit être tenue pour non avenue: 1° parce que Dalhbom déclare n'en avoir vu qu'un seul sujet si sale et si mutilé qu'il en est à peu près réduit à ne décrire que les dents apicales, qui lui sont communes avec plusieurs autres espèces; 2° parce que j'ai vu le type de cette description dont le corps est en effet en deux morceaux et en tel état qu'on ne peut nullement l'étudier. Il va sans dire que notamment les antennes, soit qu'elles existent, soit qu'elles aient été mutilées, sont absolument indistinctes.
