Diagnosis. This species ( Fig. 32View FIGURES 31 – 33), together with A. mirei  ( Fig. 33View FIGURES 31 – 33), is characteristic by the obsolete elytral pubescence in comparison with other members of A. muscarius  species-group.

Length. 4.1 –5.0 mm.

Variability. Specimens vary in body shape (robust –elongate), color of elytra (combination of blackish with gold or green patterns), prosternal lobe (arcuately emarginate or incised) and sides of prosternal process (expanded arcuately or rectinlinearly).
