Chrysis Bohemanni  : Dahlbom 1845: 12.

Type locality.

South Africa: "Port Natal".

Holotype ♀

(not ♂): [Caffraria] [J. Wahlb.] [Type] [ Bohemani  (sic) Dahlb.] [275 82] <red label> [NHRS-HEVA000001065].

Remarks.

The type is a female, with the tip of the ovipositor visible. The species is dedicated to Carl Henrik Boheman (1796-1868) a Swedish entomologist. Therefore the correct name should be bohemani and not bohemanni. However, according to the Code (ICZN 1999: Article 32.5.1) in the original publication there is no clear evidence of an inadvertent error; moreover (ICZN 1999: Article 32.5.1.1), at the end of the same publication ( Dahlbom 1845), a corrigendum is given including the correction of the name Scönherri in Schönherri, but not the correction of the name bohemanni  . Furthermore, in the following volume ( Dahlbom 1854), Carl Henrik Boheman is cited in the introduction and in the text, but Dahlbom went on using the name Chrysis bohemanni  , fixing the wrong spelling, which is in current use ( Bohart 1988; Madl and Rosa 2012; Strumia 2009).

Current status.

Trichrysis bohemanni  (Dahlbom, 1845) (transferred by Bohart 1988: 349).
