Beetles and Ruby Tailed Wasp ID, UK

I've got a few more of my back catalogue of insect photos I'm going through I could do with some help for if you don't mind. All but the ground beetle were from Cornwall in Spring-Early Summer, while the ground beetle was in Northamptonshire.

Any help with specific species would be hugely appreciated!

Thanks in advance for any help!

#4 is a Ruby-tailed Wasp, one of the Chrysis species but you can't determine which one without expert examination.
