Diagnosis.

Similar to Antrocephalus sepyra   (Walker) in general appearance, but differs from it in having the hind femur relatively longer than that of Antrocephalus sepyra   , fore wing with brown infuscation behind MV and apex of scutellum deeply incised. It differs from Antrocephalus fascicornis   (Walker) in having the face not as convex as that of Antrocephalus fascicornis   and hind femur not as wide as that of Antrocephalus fascicornis   . This species comes near Antrocephalus atulyus   Narendran in the key to species of Antrocephalus   by Narendran (1989), but Antrocephalus atulyus   differs from this species in having 1) fore wing with golden pubescence (in Antrocephalus nasutus   fore wing without golden pubescence); 2) interstices on pronotum and anterior part of mesoscutum smooth and shiny (in Antrocephalus nasutus   interstices on pronotum and anterior part of mesoscutum rugulose) and 3) hind femur with prominent and long depression separating proximal and distal lobes (Fig. 16) (in Antrocephalus nasutus   depression separating proximal and distal lobes shorter).

Host.

Unknown.

Distribution.

India, Indonesia (West Irian), Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Papua New Guinea ( Narendran 1989) and Vietnam (new record).

Variation.

In Vietnamese specimens the fore wing has two patches and the hind tibia is blackish from base to middle and reddish on remaining part.
