Gruppo di specie  
Combinazione originale Chrysis neglecta Shuckard, 1837
Serie tipica Lectotypus ♀ des. by Morgan (1984) (Mus.: London)
Descrizione originale Closely punctured; head, thorax, basal joints of the antennae, and legs, excepting the tarsi, which are black, of a dull blue or green, or variously intermingled, and occasionally splashed with gold; wings subfuscous; nervures piceous; abdomen edentate at its extremity, very minutely punctured, of an opaque carmine colour, with a slight longitudinal elevation in the centre of its second segment. (Length, 3-3½ lines.)
This common and very distinct species appears to be undescribed; it may probably have been intermixed, or mistaken on the continent for the Chr. Austriaca, from which it considerably differs, not only in size, (for it is never more than half the size of that species,) but by its open marginal cell, and its very opaque abdomen. In British cabinets and catalogues, it has hitherto stood as the Chr. rufa of Panzer, which, however, is the Hedychrum roseum of Illiger's Rossi. It frequents sandy situations, and is very abundant, with the Chr. bidentata, at Highgate.
