Differential diagnosis. This new species from the Central Atlas ( Morocco) belongs to the Acalles sierrae  group (see above) of the subgenus Acalles  s. str. It is—from a morphological and molecular perspective—closely related to Acalles asniensis Stüben, 2003  and should be compared with the holotype of this species (coll. CURCULIO-Institute) from the type locality near Asni (High Atlas):
