Loc: Kerala; Aconodes sp...I was thinking, could this be A. affinis?...Breuning's (1940) description is short and I can not make out complete sense, so I would be grateful for any further help

Yes, it should be Aconodes affinis (Breuning, 1940) : key (Breuning,1950) talks about " tubercules antennifères très élevés " .

For Breuning, the other species from south India - Aconodes subaequalis (Aurivillius, 1922)- is shorter and has down tubercula (holotype here)

Thank you very much for ascertaining the identity...Breuning (1950) is that a Revision?, If so, can you kindly share PDF in case you have one...

And I did not understand this
quote:
- is shorter and has down tubercula
...does it mean to say subaequalis has tubercle?

"Tubercule" in this case is support of antenna. Both species have no tubercule on elytra.
I send you the revision from Breuning (text in French).
