Diagnosis

The female is characterised by a combination of absence of apically hooked bristles on the labial palpi and a coarse, dense punctation of the clypeus and the terga. The male is characterised by the coarse punctation of the clypeus and the terga, and a black scutum. Populations in the southern Levant, however, may have a yellow anterolateral band on the scutum.

Description/variation

The punctation on the scutum is subject to variability. While punctation is mostly dense and punctures are separated by clearly less than half their diameters, individuals from the south Levant were examined in which punctures are separated by more than their diameter, in some cases 3–4 diameters . In particular, four specimens (2♀, 2♂) from Dayr Alla , Jordan, collected on 27 .iv .1996 (Mi. Halada leg.; CMK), have a flat, conspicuously scattered punctation on the scutum, especially posteriorly ( Figure 5 View Figure 5 ). These four specimens also have a richer yellow colouration than other specimens. For example, T2 T7 are entirely yellow except for a small median black wedge on T2 , and they have a yellow maculation on the mesepisternum . However, these specimens are provisionally still recognised as A. troodicum as there are other specimens from the Levant with a (small) yellow spot on the mesepisternum and also some scattered (rather than dense) punctation on scutum.

Seasonal occurrence

The flight period extends from April to July.

Distribution

Southern Balkans and eastern Mediterranean across the Caucasus to Iran. Found in Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, and Turkey.
