Remarks. This new species differs from A. tlaloc  by having the head distinctly wider than long; the mandible strongly angled and with the lower tooth sharpened and longer than the others; the clypeus with the apical margin truncate; the eye large; the frontal angle of the ocellar triangle acute, with the ocelli large; the vertex concave; the notaulus narrow; the metapostnotum with the metapostnotal-propodeal suture almost reaching transverse posterior carina; and the metasoma with each segment’s posterior half densely setose, whereas A. tlaloc  has the head wide; the mandible wide, curved, and step-shaped with five distal teeth; the clypeus with the median lobe rounded, short; the eye small; the frontal angle of ocellar triangle obtuse, with the ocelli very small; the vertex straight; the notaulus very narrow; the metapostnotum with the metapostnotal-propodeal suture convergent; and the metasoma with each segment’s posterior half sparsely setose.
