Acanthoderes (Psapharochrus) quadrigibba lucidus  ; Gilmour, 1965: 613 (cat.).

Although originally described in Acanthocinus  by Say, 1831 and moved to Acanthoderes  by Haldeman (1847) it was Lacordaire (1872) who finally transferred Acanthoderes quadrigibbus  to Psapharochrus  , affirming that this latter genus included most of the species allocated in Acanthoderes  at that time. Curiously, the species continued to be quoted as being in Acanthoderes  , and it was Casey (1913) who finally correctly listed it again in Psapharochrus  . Even so, the species continued to be mentioned as belonging to Acanthoderes  , until Aurivillius (1923) moved Psapharochrus  to the status of a subgenus of Acanthoderes  and included A. quadrigibba  in it. From Aurivillius (1923) to Rice & Enns (1981) the species was mentioned in Psapharochrus  (as a distinct genus) or in Acanthoderes (Psapharochrus)  . More recently, Linsley & Chemsak (1985) transferred the species to Aegomorphus  , but only because of their doubts: “Since the species of Acanthoderes sensu latu  are extremely numerous the question of generic or subgeneric assignments is difficult and beyond the scope of this work… We are assigning our five species of ‘Acanthoderes’ to Aegomorphus Haldeman  until the problem can be resolved for the entire group.” Finally, Chemsak & Hovore (2002b) transferred Aegomorphus quadrigibbus  to Acanthoderes  . The thinking behind what these authors were trying to do is somewhat mysterious, since they reported: “We have used the name Acanthoderes  herein for placement of taxa which possess most of the characters of Acanthoderes varia  and Aegomorphus decipiens  , and which fit within the existing parameters of the genus sensu  latu, without assignment to subgenera.” We do not know for sure what “ Acanthoderes varia  ” is, but it is likely Cerambyx varius Fabricius, 1787  (currently equal to Cerambyx clavipes Schrank, 1781  , and placed in Aegomorphus  ). As Aegomorphus decipiens  is the type species of Aegomorphus  , this affirmation may have indicated their view that it was closely related to Acanthoderes  . For sure, it was a transference based on doubts, and not on justified or definable features.

Acanthocinus quadrigibbus Say, 1831  has the eyes coarsely faceted, and pronotum not distinctly depressed centrally. Accordingly, it belongs to and is hereby transferred to Aegomorphus  .

As correctly reported by Chemsak & Hovore (2002b) for this species “the variation within and be- tween samples is considerable.” The elytral pubescence ( Figs. 101, 106-109View Figures 100-109) is extremely variable in concentration, but much less so in position of the maculae, and although the anterior light pubescent macula of the elytra is from slightly distinct to well-marked its placement on the elytra remains the same.
