These three Atylostagma come from Mexico (left Oaxaca, right Jalisco). 20mm.
Two species are reported for this genus: polita and glabra.
How can I identify them?
Could it be possible that the beetles on this photo belong to both of them?

Merci beaucoup. Oui, cet ajustement nomenclatural fait sens, en effet.

Tu l'as, cet article? Cela m'intéresse!

Selon le dernier article de Bezark & Lingafelter (2022), il n' y a qu'un seul Atylostagma: politum White.

In this case it's simple. All have distinct spines on both sides. So we must have Atylostagma glabrum.
Thank you, Francesco!

The difference is small but very easy to be detected.
Atylostagma glabrum (Atylostagma has gender neuter) has spines at both sides of the antennal joints, while politum has spines only at the inner side.
Here the original description of the former species.
