Diagnosis. This species is similar to A. apicaureus  by the body shape and the arrangement of elytral pubescence, but it is easily distinguishable by the shape of the aedeagus.

Description (Holotype): Body form, color and pubescence as in Fig. 17View FIGURES 13 – 18. Head small, convex; eyes slightly protruding from head outline.

Pronotum conspicuously convergent apicad, sides subparallel in basal third, then conspicuously arcuately convergent to apex; apical pronotal margin subtruncate, distinctly narrower than basal margin; posterior angles obtusely rectangular; pronotal disk strikingly convex, vaguely impressed at base; lateral impressions absent; prehumerus extending to about half of pronotal length, sharply costate, arcuate, with apex distinctly distant from marginal carina (lateral view).

Elytra without humeral carinae; elytra faintly bichromatic, black with bronze apex combined with white and golden –reddish ornamental pubescence; apices widely separately arcuate.

Prosternum ( Fig. 46View FIGURES 34 – 49): Prosternal lobe large, with apical margin distinctly incised medially; prosternal process sharply tricuspidate, sides distinctly arcuately expanded, disk feebly impressed, with lateral corners somewhat protruding ventrad. Apex of last abdominal ventrite vaguely emarginate.

Aedeagus ( Fig. 66View FIGURES 58 – 76).
