On the status of the cuckoo wasp genus Allochrysis, with descriptions of the Chrysis ear and Ch. slava species groups (Hymenoptera: Chrysididae)

P. Rosa

Abstract. Allochrysis Kimsey et Bohart, 1991 is synonymised with Chrysis Linnaeus, 1761. The Ch. ear species group is established, with descriptions of two new species, Ch. shestakovi sp. nov. from Kazakhstan and Ch. sericata sp. nov. from Uzbekistan. Chrysis paria Bingham, 1903 is transferred to the Ch. succincta species group. The new Ch. slava species group is established for Ch. slava Semenov, 1967 and the new species, Ch. priapus sp. nov. from Mongolia, is described here.
Key words: Central Asia, Mongolia, Chrysidinae, Chrysidini, new species group, new species, new synonym
