Definitely not A. pumilus because of the distinctly emarginate elytral apices and the lack of glabrous lateral areas on the pronotum. The pronotal proportions and relative lengths of antennomeres 3 and 4 also point to A. villosus over A. parallelus.

Moved tentatively
Doug Yanega's opinion: "Odd that it would have only the external spines, and fairly stubby ones, at that. It's a bit small for a villosus, but then again, it'd be large for a pumilus, so I'd have to revise my opinion to a puny villosus (there is a fairly definite antennal spine). It's not really a perfect match for the typical form of either species."

Moved from Anelaphus.

Moved from Longhorned Beetles.
