A. histeroides
By fiddling with the picture I managed to get the lateral view to where I could see the base of the pronotum, which does descend below the level of the base of the elytra, making this A. histeroides. A better lit picture would help, though.

new to BG?

Don't have my distributional information handy, but a good way to separate A. lecontei and A. histeroides is a lateral view of pronotum and base of elytra.

Does this help
I am working on my picture taking
