Diagnosis. This species, together with A. mallotiellus  , A. madanensis  , A. haucki  and A. semicaducus  (in well preserved specimens), is distinctive by having a larger area covered with ornamental elytral pubescence and also by less contrasting bichromatic elytra. It can be distinguished by the subtruncate prosternal lobe ( Fig. 40View FIGURES 34 – 49), which in A. madanensis  is markedly incised ( Fig. 42View FIGURES 34 – 49).
