Agrilus humilis   species –group

The group comprises small species (3.2–5.5 mm) of Southeast Asia ( Fig. 6 View FIGURE 6 ) having body robust and cuneiform; prehumerus is long, carinal and arcuate, rarely absent; elytral apices are arcuate or subtruncate; metafemora are obviously incrassate; tarsi are relatively short; metatarsus is distinctly shorter than metatibia; metatarsomere 1 is shorter or subequal to metatarsomeres 2–3 combined; sternal groove on apex of last ventrite is obviously arcuately sinuate; sinuosity has angulate delimitation.

Females are uniform unlike males which possess distinctive characters on aedeagi and frequently also obvious sexual adaptations like dilated antennae or metatibiae, cluster of setae on apex of metatibiae, protrusions or impressions on basal ventrite or setal comb on margin of each ventrite.

Species of Agrilus humilis   species –group are homomorphic with species of Agrilus sulcicollis   species –group ( Jendek & Grebennikov 2011) by having sternal groove on apex of last ventrite obviously sinuate but the latter have prolonged body, longer tarsi and display different trends in sexual adaptations.
