Diagnosis. This species differs from the similarly pubescent species ( A. aurarius  , A. malotiellus  , A. madanensis  ) by having the anterior pronotal margin subtruncate ( Fig. 11View FIGURES 7 – 12).

Description (Holotype): Body form, color and pubescence as in Fig. 11View FIGURES 7 – 12. Head convex; eyes slightly protruding from head outline.

Pronotum markedly convergent apically, with sides subparallel in basal third and then distinctly arcuate; apical pronotal margin markedly narrower than basal margin, subtruncate, without anterior pronotal lobe; posterior angles obtusely rectangular; pronotal disk convex, feebly impressed at base; lateral impressions absent; prehumerus extending about to half of pronotal length, sharply costate, arcuate, with apex markedly distant from marginal carina (lateral view).

Elytra without humeral carinae, short, apices widely, separately subangulately-arcuate; elytra bichromatic with golden-bronze and dark violet patterns combined with golden and golden-whitish pubescence.

Prosternum ( Fig. 43View FIGURES 34 – 49): Prosternal lobe large, with apical margin arcuate, entire, without emargination or incision; prosternal process sharply tricuspidate, sides distinctly expanded in straight line, disk impressed, with lateral corners distinctly protruding ventrad. Apex of last abdominal ventrite very finely emarginate.

Aedeagus ( Fig. 64View FIGURES 58 – 76).
