Genus & species Hedychridium infans Abeille, 1879
Species group ardens
Original combination Hedychridium minutum var. infans Abeille, 1878 [nec 1897]
Type series Lectotypus ♂ des. by Kimsey (1991) (Mus.: Paris)
Original description Pareil au type, mais à ponctuation plus forte; d'un doré verdâtre, postécusson bleu. 4 mm.
Synonyms and subspecies Hedychridium minutum var. infans Abeille, 1879: 3. Lectotypus ♂ (Kimsey, 1991), France (Paris).
Hedychridium ardens var. santchii Trautmann, 1927: 70. Syntypi, Tunisia (Berlin, Zurich)
Systematic notes Rosa (2006) - after the examination of paralectotypes in Gribodo's collection - suggests that homeopathicum is infans sensu Linsenmaier and infans is jucundum sensu Linsenmaier. Thus, jucundum should be a synonym of infans.
