PRONOTUM. Shape: visually square, Sides: slightly arcuate, rarely subangulate, Maximal width: at middle, Anterior margin: subequal to posterior or wider than posterior, Anterior lobe: Size: absent or vague, rarely moderate, Shape: arcuate, Position: at level with anterior angles, Posterior angles: Shape: rectangular, rarely acute, rarely obtuse, Apex: sharp, Disk: Impressions: medial and lateral, Medial impression: anteromedial and posteromedial, Lateral impressions (intensity): deep, Lateral impression (size): narrow, Prehumerus: Development: carinal, Shape: arcuate, Extent: to 1/3 of pronotal length, Anterior end: distant from lateral carina, Posterior end: joined with posterior angle or margin, Arc: moderate or weak, Lateral carinae: Convergence: moderately convergent, Junction: absent or present, Narrowest point: at posterior angles. ELYTRA. Color: dichromatic, Alternative color: apical portion, Apices: Arrangement: separate, Shape: arcuate, Pubescence: Color: monochromatic, Extent: entire ornamental, rarely entire ornamental with indication of stripes.

Diagnosis

From very similar Agrilus picturatus sp. n., this new species differs by having the pronotum more transverse with sides slightly arcuate; by absent or vague pronotal lobe and by the smooth or very finely denticulate elytral apices. See also Appendix.
