Chrysididae, Amiseginae, very poorly known, could you give me a shot of the dorsum which also shows the venation, and a shot of the face from the front?

Hi Alex. Yes I will see if I can get the shots you need. It's in alcohol so might not dry very well though. However in the mean time here is another one which shows a little venation.

Tried keying it, but it didnt really work I'm afraid. Have not looked much at this subfamily, if you want to know more contact Lynn Kimsey at the Bohart museum, she works with them

Lynn Kimsey replied, " It can only be a species of Myrmecomimesis (a male) in the Amiseginae. ". Thanks for your help Alex.
