Remarks. The type examination revealed conspecificity of A. morio  , A. lacroixi  and A. chapaensis  . Agrilus morio  and A. rousselatae  are homomorphic species dorsally differing only by presence/absence of pubescent topmost part of elytral apices (see key to species). From ventral view, the male of A. rousselatae  differs in having small cluster of setae on inner margin of metacoxal plates.

The record of A. morio  under synonymic name A. lacroixi  from Vietnam (Bac Giang province) published by Jendek & Nakládal 2019 is a misidentification of A. rousselatae Baudon, 1968  . Therefore Bac Giang is removed from the range of A. morio  .
