identification
Similar in appearance to specimens of A. aeneogaster, but differs in the sculpture of the pronotum, with discal reticulations fine, small and uniform. The beetles usually have a blackish pronotum with discal reticulations small and some what irregular and distinct. On the front half these may become very close and confused. The front half of the disc is somewhat flattened with a shallow longitudinal medial depression. the pronotal sides are more or less evenly rounded except for the hind angles. The hind angles may have a faint reddish or greenish tinge. In most other respects the beetles are very similar in appearance to A. inornata.
