not sure...
hard to appreciate the form of the scutellum from this straight-on dorsal view (this is one exampel where a lateral shot helps immensely).

 
Just added lateral..
Hope this will cover what you are looking for, if not just let me know and I'll reposition to what you need. Thanks for the help Blaine...

 
yes, that helps
and confirms the ID. Note the scutellum is anteriorly raised. In A. livens and A. mellillus. it is more evenly convex.
