Diagnosis. This species is distinctive by the large extent of white elytral pubescence ( Fig. 13View FIGURES 13 – 18) and mainly by the robust, apically expanded aedeagus ( Fig. 65View FIGURES 58 – 76).

Length. 4.0– 4.6 mm.

Type series. Agrilus acastus Kerremans, 1913  . Lectotype, designated by Jendek (2000): Ƥ, DEI: “ Kankau ( Formosa) H. Sauter VII. [number strikethrough] 1912 [p] \ 7.IV. [p] \ Syntypus [p] [red label] \ Kerremanns [sic!] det. [p] \ Agrilus acastus Kerr.  Type [h] [Kerremans' MS] \ Coll. DEI Eberswalde [p]”. The exact number of syntypes is unknown. Type locality. Formosa, Kankau.

Sambus horni Kerremans, 1914  . Lectotype, designated by Jendek (2000): 3, DEI: “ Kankau (Koshun) Formosa H. Sauter V. 1912 [p] \ Syntypus [p] [red label] \ Kerremanns [sic!] det. [p] \ Sambus Horni Kerr.  Type [h] [Kerremans' MS] \ Coll. DEI Eberswalde [p]”. The exact number of syntypes is unknown. Type locality. Formosa, Kankau: Koshun.

Agrilus ohbayashii  Tôyama, 1987. Holotype: 3, NSMT: “ Sengpei Formosa 30. VII. 1976 K. Matsuda [h] [blue label] \ HOLOTYPE [p] Agrilus ohbayashii  Tôyama, 1986 [h] [red label]”. Described from 7 specimens. Type locality. Formosa Sengpei [Note: Type locality determined by lectotype ( ICZN, Article 76.2.)]. Original published locality: Taiwan, Kaohsiung Hsien, Shanping near Liukuei.

Remarks. Kurosawa (1963 a) described two subspecies: A. acastus tsushimanus  and A. acastus nakanei  , which are currently considered to be different species not belonging to the A. muscarius  species-group. The name horni Kerremans, 1914  is a junior secondary homonym of horni Kerremans, 1900  ( Agrilus  ) and horni Théry, 1904  ( Agrilus  ).

Specimens examined. This species is known to us only from the type specimens.

Distribution. Taiwan.
