Diagnosis. This species is by the body form, color and by the ornamental pubescence very similar to A. aurarius  , from which it differs by the incised margin of prosternal lobe ( Fig. 42View FIGURES 34 – 49). Both species are known only from females.

Description (Holotype): Body form, color and pubescence as in Fig. 10View FIGURES 7 – 12. Head small, distinctly convex; eyes slightly protruding from head outline.

Pronotum markedly convergent apically, with sides in basal half subparallel, in apical half strikingly arcuate; apical pronotal margin clearly narrower than basal margin; anterior pronotal lobe large and prominent, distinctly projecting beyond anterior pronotal angles; posterior pronotal angles rectangular; pronotal disk conspicuously convex, feebly impressed at base; lateral impressions absent; prehumerus extending to half of pronotal length, sharply costate, bisinuate, with apex markedly distant from marginal carina (lateral view).

Elytra without humeral carinae, bichromatic with bronze and golden-bronze patterns combined with bichromatic golden and whitish pubescence; apices very narrowly conjointly arcuate.

Prosternum ( Fig. 42View FIGURES 34 – 49): Prosternal lobe large, with apical margin broadly subtriangularly incised medially; prosternal process sharply tricuspidate, sides somewhat expanded, disk deeply impressed, lateral corners distinctly protruding ventrad. Apex of last abdominal ventrite weakly emarginate.
