( Figs 67–72View FIGURES 67 – 72)

Chrysis genbergi Dahlbom, 1854: 319  . Holotype ♀ [not examined]: BRAZIL: “Brasília” (ZMLU). Pleurocera (Ipsiura) genbergi: Linsenmaier 1959: 74  .

Neochrysis (Ipsiura) genbergi: Bohart 1966: 142  .

Ipsiura genbergi: Bohart 1985: 711  .

Diagnosis. Superficially Ipsiura genbergi  most closely resembles I. lilloi Bohart  and I. frieseana (Ducke)  . It can be distinguished from these and other Ipsiura  species by the TFCAbout TFC widely opened medially, metanotum somewhat elevated distally and the conspicuous shiny bluish purple transverse stripes on dorsum of T1 and T2.

Male description. Body ( Fig. 67View FIGURES 67 – 72). Length: 7.4 mm. Coloration: head predominantly light green, with purple blue highlights on vertex; F1 green; mesosoma metallic green, with bluish purple highlights on dorsum, particularly on pronotum, mesoscutum and metanotum; metasoma metallic green, with distinct transverse bluish purple stripes on dorsum of T1 and T2, T3 with faint bluish highlights on dorsum, and lateral whitish spot; wing membrane light brown, with brown veins; femora and tibiae green; tarsi brownish, basitarsi brownish green. Head: TFCAbout TFC enclosing the median ocellus, widely interrupted medially, with marked lateral secondary facial carina ( Fig. 68View FIGURES 67 – 72); F1 longer than broad, 1.3× as long as F2; scapal basin covered with dense silvery pubescence; fore femur without flattened area or ventral tooth-like projection on outer surface of distal margin, diameter of distal area onehalf or less diameter of proximal area; fore wing with short M distal to discoidal cell, R1 shorter than stigma (as in Fig. 190View FIGURE 190); dorsum of pronotum wider than head; lower lateral pronotal surface punctate anteriorly, with distinct posterior area delimited by transverse ridge; metanotum somewhat elevated distally projecting above propodeal surface (lateral view); mesopleural lower posterior margin carinate, with indistinct small tooth-like projections. Metasoma: T3 with six acute distal teeth ( Fig. 69View FIGURES 67 – 72), pit row partially covered by anterior crease, without prepit swelling; S2 spots medium-sized to small, medially separated by one spot distance ( Fig. 70View FIGURES 67 – 72). Punctation: tiny, sparse punctures on outer surface of fore femur; largest punctures on T1, mesopleuron and metanotum. Genital capsule ( Fig. 71View FIGURES 67 – 72): cuspis as long as gonostylus; cuspis sharp, pointed apically; digitus very narrow and delicate, clavate apically; gonostylus and cuspis with short setae apically; aedeagus lobes acute apically.

Female. Same as male except for the characteristic shape of S2 spots as shown in Fig. 70View FIGURES 67 – 72.

Variation. The color pattern varies from green to bluish, especially in males from Amazonian localities. Body length 6.9–7.6 mm.

Hosts. Species of Trypoxylon  (label records).

Distribution. Argentina ( Formosa, Tucumán); Bolivia (Tarija); Brazil (AL, AM, AP, BA, GO, MA, MG, MT, MS, PA, PR, RJ, RS, SC, SP); Guyana; Paraguay (Amambay); Peru (Cuzco); Venezuela (Zulia) ( Fig. 72View FIGURES 67 – 72).

Remarks. Ipsiura genbergi  is one of the most common species of Ipsiura  and is widespread in South America.
