Taxon classification Animalia Hymenoptera Chrysididae

61. Holopyga chrysonota ( Foerster, 1853) 

Ellampus chrysonotus  Förster, 1853: 347. Holotype ♀, Hungary: Budapest (347 (descr.), depository: MNHU)*.

Holopyga gloriosa f. chrysonota  : Tsuneki 1947: 45 (cat.), 46 (China: Beijing, Inner Mongolia, tax., distr.).

Holopyga chrysonota  : Linsenmaier 1959: 30 (key), 32 (tax., descr.), 197 (fig. 34); Kimsey and Bohart 1991: 227 (fig. 68a), 230 (cat.); Kurzenko and Lelej 2007: 1004 (China, cat.).

Distribution.

China (Beijing, Inner Mongolia). Widely distributed in the Palaearctic Region ( Kurzenko and Lelej 2007).

Remarks.

The identification of this taxon is dubious because Tsuneki (1947) did not separate ignicollis Dahlbom, 1854 from chrysonota ( Förster, 1853). The two were later recognized as valid species by Linsenmaier (1959), who provided both a key and characteristics to distinguish them from one another. The specific name Chrysis gloriosa  Fabricius (= Holopyga gloriosa  ) was suppressed by ICZN (1998).
