( Figs 102–106View FIGURES 102 – 106)

Chrysis leucocheila Mocsáry, 1889: 408  . Lectotype ♀ [examined by photos]: MEXICO (HNHM). Designed by Bohart, in Bohart & French (1986: 342).

Diagnosis. Ipsiura leucocheila  most closely resembles I. leucocheiloides (Ducke)  and I. tropicalis Bohart. It  can be distinguished from these species by the low sloping gently prepit swelling (strongly convex in I. leucocheiloides  ), acute distal teeth on T3 (generally obtuse in I. leucocheiloides  and I. tropicalis  ) and fore femur without flattened area on distal margin (clearly flattened in I. leucocheiloides  ). In addition, the combination of the following characters will be important for distinguishing I. leucocheila  from other Ipsiura  species: T3 with four sharp distal teeth, prepit swelling low, sloping gently; T3 with lateral whitish spot, pit row well-developed; round metanotum; the rounded spots on S2, and the TFC slightly interrupted medially.

Female description. Body ( Fig. 102View FIGURES 102 – 106). Length: 6.5 mm. Coloration: head predominantly green blue, with faint bluish highlights on vertex; F1 brown; mesosoma metallic greenish blue, with faint dark purplish highlights on dorsum, particularly on pronotum and mesoscutum; metasoma metallic bluish green, with transverse purplish stripes on dorsum of T1 and T2; T3 with bluish highlights dorsally, with lateral whitish spot; wing membrane light brown, with brown veins; femora and tibiae greenish blue; tarsi brownish, hind basitarsus green. Head: TFC enclosing the median ocellus, sub-rectangular, as long as broad, slightly interrupted medially ( Fig. 103View FIGURES 102 – 106); F1 slightly longer than broad, about 1.1× as long as F2; scapal basin covered with silvery pubescence. Mesosoma: fore femur without ventral tooth-like projection or flattened area on outer surface of distal margin, diameter of distal area about one-half diameter of proximal area; fore wing with short M distal to discoidal cell, R1 shorter than stigma (as in Fig. 190View FIGURE 190); dorsal surface of pronotum wider than head; lower lateral pronotal surface with shallow, sparse punctures anteriorly, posterior area indistinctly delimited by faint transverse ridge; metanotum rounded, without differentiated surface; mesopleural lower posterior margin carinate, with indistinct tooth-like projections. Metasoma: T3 with four acute distal teeth ( Fig. 104View FIGURES 102 – 106), pit row well-developed, with long and deep foveae, prepit swelling low, sloping gently; S2 spots medium-sized, round, separated medially about one spot distance ( Fig. 105View FIGURES 102 – 106). Punctation: outer surface of fore femur impuctate; largest punctures on T1, mesopleuron and metanotum.
