Moved from Chrysis.
The photo is not very sharp but it seems to me that there are no teeth on the distal edge of third tergum (as most species of the genus Chrysis have). Instead there is a shallow emargination in the middle, this and somewhat stouter habitus are typical characters for the genus Ceratochrysis.

Moved from Chrysidinae.
