A small, stem nesting solitary wasp. Identification keys are given in Lomholdt (1984) (as R. nigrinum), Richards (1980) and Yeo & Corbet (1995).
This species had not been recorded in Britain at the time of Richards' (1980) RES handbook, but identification characters are given in Lomholdt (1984). It was first recorded in Britain in 1986 (Allen, 1987), although it may previously have been confused with S. solskyi.
This is by far the more common species of Stigmus in Britain.
Identification keys and general biology are given in Morgan (1984) and Falk (1991).
Identification keys and general biology are given in Morgan (1984) and Falk (1991). Previously known as C. helleni Linsenmaier, 1959. Kunz (1994) considers C. bicolor Lepeletier, 1805 and C. illigeri to be the same species. Morgan (1984) separates these two names, with C. bicolor only known from Jersey.
