Chrysis soror  : Dahlbom 1854: 240.

Type locality.

Greece: "Habitat in insula Rhodo, a D. Hedenborg detecta; Mus. D. Loew".

Lectotype

(here designated) ♂: [Rhodus] [Hedenb.] [det. W. Trautmann] [ Tetrachrysis abbreviaticornis  Buyss. ??] <handritten by Trautmann> [NHRS-HEVA000001121].

Remarks.

Dahlbom (1854) described Chrysis soror  based on more male specimens collected at Rhodes by Hedenborg and Loew. Kimsey and Bohart (1991: 464) listed the holotype in MNHU, but we could not find it with the help of the curator Frank Koch; Loew’s Chrysididae  are not conserved in MNHU, as well as in BMNH or NHRS. Since it is possible that one or more syntypes could be found in another collection, we select the male specimen housed at the NHRS as lectotype, which matches perfectly the current interpretation of the species.

The lectotype is partially damaged; it lacks the left flagellum, tarsi of the right midleg and the left hindleg except for the coxa. The metasoma is glued to the mesosoma.
