Well, I do not know. Here some remarks :

Acrocyrtidus simianshanensis simianshanensis Chiang & L. Chen, picture here, has got 3 pairs of black marks (cf description), and Acrocyrtidus simianshanensis reductus Holzschuh, 2010 , picture here, only two pairs (apical one lacking, as on holotype picture).

One the same page here, we can see that your specimen is also close to another species with 3 pairs of black marks : A. aurescens Gress. The problem is the half dark area of your specimen : is it colour or grease? under the dark area, is there a black mark ? on the same page you can see a specimen posted on this forum with also a large dark area on basis of elytra.

I have two specimens that are identical. I will check the second one to see if the dark area in the center of the elytra is present. If not, my gut say simianshanensis. for what that is worth. Ha

I think it is just this species.
The specimen that Xavier donated to me made the same mess after hydration. Then, I have degreased it and it became normal again.
