The patterning of this largely grass-feeding genus is normally easily recognised, but the species are less easily separated.
A. venosa has a high proportion of black markings (as opposed to chestnut-brown) transverse striations on the pronotum. The scutellum has undulating dark patches running along the edge, as well as a rounded, dark central mark.
Found predominantly in dry grasslands.
