Larvae of this rare beetle, which is known only from several localities along the lower and middle course of the Syr Darya River in South Kazakhstan, are developing in living thin stems and branches of Halimodendron halodendron. Interesting details about the bionomy of A. jacobsoni were reported by Lech Karpiński et al. in 2018 [✧].
