Area between antennal tubercles and upper eye lobes with sculpturing and pubescence as on frons; remaining surface of vertex and area behind upper eye lobes coarsely punctate only close to eyes, with dense yellowish-white pubescence close to eyes, with oblique glabrous band on each side, nearly glabrous on central area of vertex close to prothorax, and sparsely pubescent on remaining surface behind upper eye lobes. Area behind lower eye lobes finely, somewhat abundantly punctate; with narrow yellowish-white pubescent band on superior area close to eye, with wide white pubescent macula close to inferior area of eye, glabrous on remaining surface. Genae minutely striate-punctate except smooth apex; with yellowish-white pubescence not obscuring integument on striate-punctate area, glabrous on smooth area. Postclypeus coarsely punctate on sides of wide central area, smooth centrally and laterally; glabrous on smooth areas, with yellowish-white pubescence on punctate areas, and tuft of long golden-yellow setae directed forward on each of wide central area close to anteclypeus. Labrum coplanar with anteclypeus at posterior 2/3, oblique at anterior third; with yellowishwhite pubescence not obscuring integument on posterior 2/3, nearly glabrous on anterior third, and with fringe of golden-yellow setae on anterior margin. Antennal tubercles densely, minutely punctate; pubescence as on frons. Gulamentum smooth, glabrous on wide posterior area; depressed, somewhat finely striate, with sparse yellowishwhite pubescence on narrow anterior area. Distance (only holotype measured) between upper eye lobes 0.35 times length of scape (0.21 times distance between outer margins of eyes); in frontal view, distance between lower eye lobes 0.86 times length of scape (0.52 times distance between outer margins of eyes). Antennae 1.7 times elytral length, reaching elytral apex at basal third of antennomere VIII. Scape with yellowish-white pubescence nearly obscuring integument, except dorsal surface with part of surface with yellowish-brown pubescence.

Sides of prothorax coarsely, somewhat abundantly punctate; with dense yellowish-white pubescence, not obscuring punctures. Prosternum with grayish-white pubescence not obscuring integument, denser laterally. Prosternal process with straight laterocentral margins; narrowest area slightly narrower than half of width of procoxal cavity. Mesoventrite almost glabrous centrally, with grayish-white pubescence laterally. Mesoventral process slightly expanded to apex, covered with grayish-white setae. Mesanepisternum and mesepimeron with grayish-white pubescence almost obscuring integument, slightly yellower on small area of mesanepisternum close to procoxal cavity. Metanepisternum with yellowish-brown pubescence basally, grayish-white on remaining surface. Metaventrite with grayish-white pubescence, denser more yellowish on transverse band on each side near to metacoxae. Scutellum semicircular, with yellowish-white pubescence. Elytra. With slightly elevated, longitudinal, centrobasal crest on anterior fifth; humeri rounded, somewhat projected forward; surface coarsely, somewhat abundantly punctate (punctures slightly finer toward apex, somewhat scabrous basally); posterior margin concave, with outer and sutural angles rounded (sutural angle wider); elytral pubescence both yellowish-white, yellowish-brown, dark brown, and white, forming complex pattern ( Fig. 1 View FIGURES 1–8 ); surface with moderately long, erect brown setae throughout, inserted into anterior portion of punctures. Legs. Femora with grayish-white pubescence partially obscuring integument. Protibiae with three grayish-white pubescent bands, on basally, forming distinct ring, on about middle, not reaching ventral surface, another on apex, not reaching ventral surface; remaining dorsal and lateral surfaces with sparse grayish-white pubescence; ventral surface with dense, bristly yellowish-brown pubescence on posterior 2/3.

Type material. Holotype male from PERU, La Libertad: Sánchez Carrión Province, road PE 10C km 109, 7º53.17’S / 77º37.26’W, near Chagual , 1300 m, 21.XII.2016, V. Sinyaev col. ( MZSP) GoogleMaps . Paratypes – 8 males, 2 females, same data as holotype (3 males, AKPC; 1 male, CCT-UFMG; 4 males, 2 females, MZSP) GoogleMaps .

Etymology. The new species is named in honor of Anton Olegovich Kozlov (AKPC), who sent the types, and donated the holotype and some paratypes for MZSP collection.

Remarks. Aegomorphus antonkozlovi sp. nov. is similar to A. modestus (Gyllenhal, 1817) , but differs as follows: upper eye lobes wide, width distinct larger than basal diameter of the antennomere III; distance between upper eye lobes slightly larger than width of one lobe. In A. modestus , upper eye lobes about as wide as the basal diameter of the antennomere III, and the distance between upper eye lobes larger than three times the width of one lobe. It differs from Aegomorphus galapagoensis galapagoensis (Linell, 1898) , A. g. vonhageni (Mutchler, 1938), and A. g. williamsi (Linsley & Chemsak, 1966) by the distance between upper eye lobes slightly larger than width of one lobe (more than two times in the three subspecies of A. galapagoensis ). Aegomorphus antonkozlovi differs from A. penrosei (Chemsak & Hovore, 2002) by the antennomere III in male distinctly longer than IV (slightly longer in A. penrosei ). It can be separated from A. pictus (Galileo & Martins, 2012) by the elytral apex not rounded (rounded in A. pictus ), and elytral centrobasal crest slightly elevated (distinctly elevated in A. pictus ).
