Original combination Chrysis sybarita var. valesiana Frey-Gessner, 1887
Type series Syntypi (Mus.: Geneva)
Original description Länge, ebenfalls von Sierre, welches bei zwar fast verschwundenem Goldglanz auf den Seitenfeldern des Mesonotum nur noch einen grossen rothgoldenen nach den Seiten ins grüne übergehenden Fleck querüber oberhalb der Stirnkante besitzt; auch die Stirne ist beim ♂ goldglänzend, während sie beim ♀ blaugrün ist, sonst aber stimmt dieses ♂ mit dem Steck'schen Weibchen ganz überein. Diese Varietät ist so ausgezeichnet, dass ich nicht umhin kann, sie mit einem Namen zu bezeichnen. Var.: valesiana. - Steck fand das Weibchen in der Nähe eines Nestes von Epip. (Hopopl.) spiricornis. Von dieser schönen Varietät sind mir nur diese zwei Stücke bekannt.
