Diagnosis:

3.0- 4.2 mm (abdomen extended); RL: 1.4-1.7 mm. In external appearance similar to A. rufotestacea  ( Fig. 30View Figs 30-39), also rather variable, but distinguished as follows:

Coloration usually similar to that of A. rufotestacea  , but pronotum occasionally darker.

Head transverse, HW/HL: 1.07-1.13; puncturation on average more distinct; surface often (but not always!) with shallower microsculpture and more shine. Eyes larger and clearly more prominent ( Fig. 31View Figs 30-39), usually longer than postocular region in dorsal view; EyL/PoL: 0.75-0.90 ( Fig. 32View Figs 30-39).

Pronotum more transverse, PW/PL: 1.13-1.25; puncturation usually distinct; surface often (but not always!) with shallower microsculpture and more shine; midline with or without fine shallow furrow ( Fig. 31View Figs 30-39).

Elytra slightly longer than pronotum, EL/PL: 1.02-1.08 ( Fig. 30View Figs 30-39).

: median lobe of aedeagus larger, ML: 0.36-0.39 mm; ventral process more strongly curved and with more acute apex in lateral view ( Figs 33-36View Figs 30-39).

: spermatheca of similar shape as in A. rufotestacea  ( Figs 37-39View Figs 30-39).

Distribution and bionomics:

The distribution of this Eastern Mediterranean species ranges from Lesbos and Bulgaria in the west and northwest to Israel in the southeast ( Map 2View Map 2).

As far as is known, the material examined was sifted from leaf litter in various biotopes. The fact that the species was collected in larger numbers on various occasions suggests that its ecology may be somewhat different from that of the preceding species. The upper end of the altitude range is at nearly 2000 m. The species was collected during the period from late winter through spring: February (8 specimens /1 record); March (3/3); April (28/16); May (31/10). Two of the specimens from Bitlis may also have been collected in early June, but the date range is rather inexact (21.V.-18.VI.).
