Original description Chrysis viridi-caerulea, thorace antice abdomineque aureis, ano triemarginato.
Habitat in agro Arquatensi, rara.
Long. 3. Lin. Lat. 1. ½ Lin. Antennae nigrae. Caput caeruleum, maculâ latâ inter oculos viridi-micante. Thorax anticè aureus, posticè viridi-caeruleus: pleuris pectoreque caeruleis. Abdomen aureum, splendidum; ano triemarginato, dentibus retusis: ventre viridi. Pedes caerulei, tibiarum apice tarsisque intùs pallidis. Alae fuscescentes.

Species distincta mihi videtur, nam, neglectis hisce manifestis colorum differentiis, cur Chrysides ignita, fulgida, splendidula, analis, stoudera varietates eiusdem speciei non haberentur?
