Chrysis scintillans Valkeila, 1971  Plate 19

Chrysis scintillans  : Valkeila 1971: 85.

Type locality.

Finland: “Vanaja”.

Paratype 1 ♀.

[Jmt. Undersåker [unreadeable] 16.7.48 [Valliste 1000m C.B. Gaunitz] [ Chrysis L. mediata ssp. fenniensis  Lins. Linsenmaier det. 59] [ Chrysis scintillans  n.sp. det. E. Valkeila - 69] [Typus] <red label> [NHRS-HEVA000001117].

Remarks.

The paratype lacks both right wings. The correct name for the locality of this paratype is found in the original description. The holotype is deposited at the MZH. Chrysis scintillans  was described based on seventy-six specimens from Finland, Russia and Sweden. Paukkunen et al. (2014: 41) synonymised it with Chrysis solida  Haupt, 1956, and found that the paratypes belong to different species: Chrysis schencki  Linsenmaier, 1968 (36 exx.), Chrysis solida  Haupt, 1956 (33 exx.), Chrysis ignita  group (2 exx.), Chrysis impressa  Schenck, 1856 (2 exx.), Chrysis angustula  Schenck, 1856 (1 ex.) and Chrysis subcoriacea  Linsenmaier, 1959 (1 ex.). The paratype preserved in NHRS belongs to Chrysis schencki  (V. Soon and J. Paukkunen, in litt.). Valkeila considered the punctation of the terga as a more important character in species identification rather than other characteristics, such as the width of the ovipositor.
